We've collected information, including links to resources, that will help save you time when renewing your drivers license in Oklahoma. Select from the options below to get started.
Online application assistance can simplify the process for many DMV related services, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more.

Via our partners at Road America, you will also receive 30 days of both emergency Roadside Assistance and the Repair Assist consultation service.

Other benefits include an ongoing monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering important updates that affect drivers, important safety tips and ways to save money on vehicle-related services.
2: By mail, if eligible (read below for instructions)
Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the DPS in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local DPS.
3: Via a local DPS office
If you prefer to access DPS services in person or your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at a physical DPS office location. Varying DPS offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the DPS closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your local DPS allows you to make a personal appointment. Read more below to see if an in-person visit is either preferred or required.
