"VETERAN" DRIVER LICENSE AND IDENTIFICATION CARD PRESS RELEASE
(Oklahoma City, OK.) The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety is pleased to announce the unveiling of the new "Veteran" logo that will officially be placed on the front of qualified veteran's Oklahoma driver license or state identification cards. "Oklahomans have a profound respect and admiration for the men and women who have bravely served our nation. The new veteran designation on state drivers' licenses is a small way in which we can honor their sacrifice and say "thank you" for their service to our state and our nation," Governor Mary Fallin.
"We're pleased to announce that changes in the system, and card will allow Oklahoma veterans to identify themselves right on their license by choosing to have a special veteran's insignia added to the card," said DPS Commissioner and Secretary of Safety and Security, Mike Thompson, who also is a decorated Army soldier. "This option will be available after November 1, 2012 and was implemented as a manner in which to honor the men and women of Oklahoma who have served our country," Thompson said.
Retired General and Secretary of Military and Veteran Affairs, Rita Aragon, said that this will be of an advantage to military veterans who often do not have a Veterans Administration identification card because they do not have a disability. "Oklahoma veterans will now be able to present their Oklahoma driver license or state issued identification card that has the "Veteran" status on the front. Veterans can then present those cards to businesses that honor and provide discounts to military veterans," said Aragon. "This is a point of pride for veterans and Oklahoma's way of saying, "thank you for your service!" said Aragon.
The new addition to the state identification cards and driver licenses will take effect today, November 1, 2012, but the only two tag agencies in the state that have the new equipment are in Edmond. "As we get the new equipment installed at all the tag agencies around the state, we will update the DPS web site with those locations. We hope to have all of the tag agencies in the state on-line before the end of the year," said DPS Director of Driver License Services, Jeff Hankins. "Veterans who choose to have the "Veteran" status on their card will have to show proof of military service by providing their DD-214, 215, WWII discharge document or a US Department of Veterans Affairs photo ID card when renewing or obtaining their identification card or driver license," said Hankins.

Pilot Testing for the New License Issuance system
Department of Public Safety officials today announced the start of pilot testing for the redesigned driver license, and new driver licensing issuance system. The Pilot testing of the new license and upgrades will begin Thursday, September 6, in Edmond, with statewide deployment scheduled to start about two weeks later.
While the security elements of the license remain the same, the appearance of the card is changing, such as repositioning the photograph of the card holder's face in certain documents. These changes will enable Oklahoma to reach the national standard that many other states have adopted, and will be a significant step in achieving the goal of "one person, one identity," to address the problem of identity fraud.
"The new license meets rigorous security requirements, and will not only upgrade our system, but enhance customer service as well," said Michael C. Thompson, Commissioner for the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety.
"We're also pleased to announce that changes in the system and card, will allow Oklahoma veterans to identify themselves right on their license by choosing to have a special veteran's insignia added to the card. This option will be available after November 1, 2012 and was implemented as a manner in which to honor the men and women who have served our country." Thompson said.
If you are needing a driver license or ID card please review the following information. If you go to an DPS Exam office that has been installed with the new system you will have to also go to a Tag Agency that has had the new system installed. Likewise, if you go to a DPS facility that still is operating off the old system you must go to a Tag Agency that is still operating on the old system. To find out which DPS Exam sites and Tag Agencies are compatible, click on the link below and follow the instructions. This information will be updated daily.
