Your Oklahoma state-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards will continue to be valid for travel through October of next year.
Gov. Mary Fallin and the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety recently announced they have been notified that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has granted the state’s REAL ID extension through Oct. 10, 2019.
This means the federal government will continue to recognize Oklahoma driver’s licenses and ID cards until that time. The Transportation Security Administration, or TSA, will continue to accept Oklahoma driver's licenses and state-issued identification cards at least until the October 2019 deadline for air travel as well.
“This is great news for Oklahomans and means there will be no restrictions on individuals using Oklahoma licenses to fly or access federal buildings through Oct. 10 of next year,” Fallin said in a news release. “Oklahoma is actively working towards full compliance.”
