(OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla.) The Department of Public Safety is announcing expanded services at the megacenters. The megacenters initially offered only renewal and replacement services. That is now expanding to three additional services including out-of-state transfers, some learner permits and original identification cards.

Anyone who has moved to Oklahoma from another state and needs to get an Oklahoma driver license or identification card can now visit the megacenter for this service. The megacenter can now also issue learner permits, provided the customer has completed driver's education and has a certificate of completion or has taken the written (knowledge) test and passed at an Oklahoma Career Tech and has the required documentation. And the megacenter will also be able to issue first-time Oklahoma identification cards. Customers needing a first-time driver license will still have to visit a DPS location.

The megacenters will continue to offer renewal and replacement services. This includes renewals and replacements of both Class D and commercial driver licenses and identification cards (both REAL ID and non-REAL ID compliant, both four-year and eight-year.) Customers can also receive a first-time REAL ID provided they already have a current Oklahoma license or valid Oklahoma ID. 

The Department of Public Safety served approximately six thousand customers in the first two weeks of operating the Oklahoma City megacenter. This includes more than a thousand of the brand new eight-year driver licenses and identification cards.

The Oklahoma City megacenter is operating from July 26 - December 10 and is located at 1000 N.E. 10th (the old Health Department building.) The Tulsa megacenter is operating from August 16 - January 7 and is located at the Kensington Business Center at 7130 S. Lewis Avenue, Suite 190. Both locations are open from 6:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. No appointment is necessary. Both locations are operating on a walk-in basis only and both will offer the expanded services.

These megacenters were developed in partnership with Governor Kevin Stitt's office, the Oklahoma legislature and the Department of Public Safety to meet the driver license and identification needs of Oklahomans.

Drive tests and reinstatements will not be offered at the megacenter. These customers must visit a DPS location.

DPS still has open job positions for both the Oklahoma City and Tulsa megacenters! Anyone interested in working at either location can apply at Select the license clerk option.
