Oklahoma License Information
Transfer another state driver's license to Oklahoma
Upon establishing residence, new residents who own vehicles that are in Oklahoma are required to register all of their vehicles in Oklahoma before they apply for an Oklahoma driver's license.
Upon the completion of registering your vehicle, and if your license from another state is valid, take it along with an acceptable second form of identification to a Driver Examiner. The written and driving test may be waived if department standards are met. If you possess an out-of-country license, contact a Driver Examiner to find out if the tests can be waived. Even if your written and driving tests are waived, you will still be required to take a vision test.
Registering Your Car in Oklahoma
Before you visit the Oklahoma Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to register your car, you will first need to have proof that you have current auto insurance. You'll also need to bring your vehicle title and other personal identification documents. If you've just moved to Oklahoma, be sure to inform GEICO of your new address and we'll send you Oklahoma proof of insurance cards to match. After you finish registering at the DMV, you have 30 days to take the car to the nearest Oklahoma Department of Public Safety (DPS) or Oklahoma Tax Commission (OTC) location to see a tag agent who will visually inspect the vehicle to confirm the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and odometer reading.

Teen Drivers in Oklahoma
Oklahoma teens looking to get their driver's license should become familiar with Oklahoma's teen driving laws. To receive a learner's permit, a teen driver must be at least 15 ½ years old, complete a written exam, and show proof of enrollment in a driver education program (driver education is only required if under age 16). After six months, the driver becomes eligible for a restricted license, which means the teen cannot drive between 10:00 PM and 5:00 AM. The teen can also only drive with one passenger who must be at least 21 years old, unless the passengers are family members. All restrictions are lifted after six more months of driving at a minimum age of 16 years, 6 months (or age 17 without driver education courses).
