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.

Reinstate Driver License

Reinstatement information concerning driving privileges can be obtained by calling the Driver Compliance telephone bank at either (405)425-2098 or (405)425-2059 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. or by submitting your questions by clicking here.

DPS now offers the Impaired Driver Accountability Program (IDAP). IDAP is a more affordable and convenient alternative to traditional administrative license revocation. Participants in IDAP are still required to install an ignition interlock device and have it monitored. However, the costs of the program are less than a revocation and it does not appear on the participant's motor vehicle report. Click here for more information on IDAP. Click here for the IDAP enrollment form.

Although the statutory requirements necessary to reinstatement will vary dependent upon the nature of the revocation, suspension, cancellation, denial or disqualification, there are some requirements that are required in most reinstatements.
