Every four years, the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety requires individuals to renew their driver’s license to continue operating motor vehicles in the state.

License holders have a 60-day grace period after their expiration date, allowing them to renew without facing late fees. After two or more years, you will be required to take the written test and road test all over again. 

Completing the renewal process is fairly simple, but can be tricky unless you know what to do.

What Documents Are Needed to Renew Your Oklahoma Drivers License?

You’ll need to provide the following:

  • Class D Driver’s License
  • Full name
  • Phone Number
  • Email address
  • Proof of citizenship or legal status in the US
  • Proof of primary and secondary identification
  • Renewal fee

How to Renew an Oklahoma Driver’s License

The Oklahoma DPS allows drivers to renew their licenses in two different ways.

  • In-person
  • By Mail

Online renewals are currently not available in the state.

Renewal In-Person

Renewing your driver’s license in person is very straightforward. US citizens and permanent residents are able to go directly to a Tag agent to complete the process. Resident aliens must present their immigration documents at a Driver License Examiner’s office first.

To renew in person, follow these simple steps.

  1. Visit a Motor License Agent (Tag Agent)
  2. Provide identification documents
  3. Have your picture taken
  4. Pay the associated renewal fee

Renewal By Mail

License renewal by mail is generally only available for drivers who are out-of-state or out of the country. To complete the process by mail, complete the steps outlined below. 

  1. Prepare the following documents:
    • Full name and Date of Birth
    • License Number
    • Oklahoma residential address
    • Out of state address
    • Copy of primary identification
    • Copy of secondary identification
    • Renewal fee totaling $38.50, payable to the ‘Department of Public Safety’

Renewing an Expired Driver’s License

You can renew your Oklahoma driver’s license if it has expired within the last two years. Drivers are given a 60-day grace period to complete the application without facing late fees for delayed renewal.

If two years have passed, you will have to complete the process of applying for a fresh license (including taking and passing the vision, written knowledge, and driving skills test). Your new, valid license will be sent to the out of state address you list in the application.
