DO I NEED REAL ID?
You are not required to get an Oklahoma REAL ID compliant license or identification card; however, if you plan to fly domestically or access federal facilities or military bases after
May 3, 2023, you must have a REAL ID compliant license or identification card or another acceptable form of identification such as a passport or passport card. If you already have your passport, we suggest waiting to get your REAL ID compliant license when your current license expires. Here are some reasons why choosing to upgrade your Oklahoma license
or identification card to REAL ID makes you a real star…
You can choose if the REAL ID star is right for you, but the star on the card makes life easier!
The REAL ID star will give you easy, no-hassle access to domestic flights and federal facilities.
An ID with a
REAL ID star represents an identity that is protected.
