The application procedure for getting a drivers license in Oklahoma varies for different age groups. If you are younger than 18, you will be required to apply for a learners permit before you can be issued with a valid state drivers license. You should collect the following documents before you visit the DPS and apply for your license:
- A drivers license application (must be signed by your parent in front of the DPS official)
- Proper identification (you can find the list of accepted documents here)
- Proof of enrollment in school or full-time employment (details on acceptable documents can be found in the Drivers Manual)
- A drivers education completion certificate
- A Social Security Number
When you have all required documents, you may visit a DPS office for your written test. You will be required to perform the following tasks when you come in:
- Submit the documents listed above
- Have your picture taken
- Have your thumb image taken
- Pass the vision examination
- Pay the $25 fee
- Pass the written examination
Upon completing the knowledge test, you will be issued a learners permit. The learners permit allows you to drive while being supervised and must be held for at least six months before you can apply for the road test.
After this period, you can call your nearest DPS office to schedule an appointment for the driving test. Bring your learners permit with you when you come in for the test. Your car must also be properly registered and satisfy the safety requirements. Upon successful completion of your driving test and once you pay the required fee, you will receive your drivers license.
