New Oklahoma driver's licenses

Updated:
Oklahoma is going hi-tech with its new digital driver's license system.

Tuesday, Governor Brad Henry became the first Oklahoman to be issued the state's new license. Each license will have your photograph and signature, along with a bar code and digital fingerprint.

Governor Henry and Public Safety Commissioner, Bob Ricks say the new technology will nearly wipe out the chances for forgeries. “There are some who have talked about big brother. It really has nothing to do with that concept.”

Public Safety Commissioner Bob Ricks, “it became apparent more people were coming to Oklahoma to illegal driver's licenses, be it illegal aliens or the criminal element.”

The new driver's license technology should be delivered to tag agencies across Oklahoma within the next three months.

You do not have to get one of the new licenses until your current license expires.
