The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is extending the REAL ID full enforcement date by 19 months, from October 1, 2021 to May 3, 2023, due to circumstances resulting from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Commercial driver license (CDL) and commercial learner permit (CLP) expiration dates have been extended by FMCSA until November 30, 2021, as long as they were not expired prior to March 1st, 2020. Medical certificate and variance expiration dates have been extended until November 30, 2021, as long as they were not expired prior to June 1, 2021.

 

DPS and tag agents are now offering eight (8) year driver licenses and identification cards. Fees are double the four (4) year option.

Applying for a Motorcycle License (Between the Age of 14 and 16)

To apply for a Motorcycle license between the age of 14 and 16, you must appear before a Driver License Examiner, present the required documentation and take a vision and the basic law written exam.  You will have to present a completion certificate showing you have completed a basic riders course approved by the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety. Under the age of 16, you have to hold a learner permit for a minimum of 30 days. The Learner Permit will allow you to operate a motorcycle or motor-driven cycle.

Applicants also have the option of taking the written test at a Career Tech Testing Center. There is a $25.00 fee associated with this and the applicant will still have to visit a DPS location for the vision test and to be issued the permit. Click here for more information on Career Tech testing.

Per Title 47 11-805 No person shall operate any motorcycle at a speed greater than the legally posted speed limit; provided, in no event nor at any time shall an operator under the age of sixteen (16) years drive a motorcycle on a highway which has a minimum speed limit established and posted.

The restricted licensee may apply on or after thirty (30) days from date of issuance of the restricted class D license with a motorcycle-only restriction to have the restriction of being accompanied by a licensed driver removed by successfully completing the driving portion of an examination. If the licensee presents a completion card showing that the applicant has completed the Motorcycle Safety Foundation Course, the road test and written test will be waived.
