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.

Operating a Motor Vehicle Without Being Licensed

The Department, upon receiving a record of conviction of an offense committed by any person whose license or privilege to operate motor vehicle is under suspension or revocation, shall extend the period of such suspension or revocation.  Under 47 O.S. Section 6-303 (D)(E) or (F), the extension may be for an additional 3 months, 4 months or 12 months.  This type of action by the Department effects only the date the driver is eligible to apply for reinstatement.  The driver must consult the Add On Order and the original Order of Revocation or Confirmation Notice for the statutory requirements necessary to reinstate.
