DPS closes driver’s license stations in Oklahoma


Oilfield truckers and those doing maintenance on wind farms in Oklahoma who need to renew their drivers license might have to wait a while because of the coronavirus.

As the Tulsa World reported, the Department of Public Safety announced it will disengage from in-person public interactions until further notice in reaction to the continual spread of the coronavirus in Oklahoma.

“The Department of Public Safety and our extraordinary employees are committed to providing necessary services to all our citizens at this very challenging time. We encourage everyone to take advantage of the online tools we offer in order to meet your needs,” DPS Commissioner John Scully said in a statement.

The department has also extended the expiration dates of all Class D driver’s licenses, identification cards, commercial driver’s licenses and handicap parking placards.

DPS is also working on expanding services to include commercial and suspended or revoked driver’s licenses.
