Transferring a Driver License from a US Territory

A Driver License from a United States Territory, that is not expired, can be transferred to Oklahoma without having to take a written or drive test.

If the license has expired the applicant will have to take a written and drive test.

Applicant must appear before a Driver License Examiner and furnish both primary and secondary documentary proofs of identity, proof of full legal name and birth date, and proof of legal presence in the United States.

The applicant must bring in the following:
  1. Primary ID — usually a state-certified birth certificate. For a complete list of acceptable primary identification documents, click here.

  3. Applicants who possess a valid license issued by any United States possession or territory (American Samoa, Guam, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the U. S. Virgin Islands) must present an English translation of their traffic record dated within 60 days to the Examiner for their tests to be waived.
  4. Social Security Number.
  5. If the last name to be entered on the Oklahoma License is different from the name on the Primary ID , the applicant must bring in any documents showing a legal name change: Such as Marriage, Adoption, Divorce etc:
