UNDATED -- There's no such thing as a free ride, at least when trying to get a State of Oklahoma driver's license at your local tag agency.

The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety announced Wednesday that beginning May 14, there will be a $4.50 charge for the Oklahoma Driver's Manual used for Class D driver's license testing.

An agreement between the Department of Public Safety and tag agents allows the agents to print and distribute the manual.

The manual had previously been provided free of charge.

"With the current budget shortfall, that is no longer possible," said Public Safety Commissioner Kevin Ward. "Since tag agents are located throughout the state and are already a part of the driver license process, this solution for the manual's availability is an alternative."

Commercial driver's license exam manuals will still be provided free of charge.

There is an alternative to paying for the driving rule book however. All manuals can be downloaded for free – or just the cost of the paper it's printed out on – at the Department of Public Safety web site.

There is also a list of tag agent locations where the operator's manual can be purchased.
