Error Found on Some Oklahoma Driver Licenses, ID Cards
(OKLAHOMA CITY) The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety has announced that an error has been found on some Oklahoma driver licenses and identification cards. The holographic security emblem that should appear on the front of each individual license or card may, in some instances, appear on the back or not at all.
License holders and ID card holders are asked to examine their documents to make sure the image appears on the front. Please see attached image for an example of the correct holographic image.
DPS officials say the licenses and ID cards with incorrect or missing images are still considered valid, but will likely cause delays when the holder attempts to use them for personal identification in places such as airports, banks or federal buildings.
Those who have licenses or ID cards with incorrect images are encouraged to return to the Motor License Agency (Tag Agency) where the document was issued. A corrected license or ID card will be issued at no charge. Individuals are urged to do so at their earliest convenience.
To confirm which tag agency issued the faulty license or ID card, the bearer may check the four-digit number printed at the top right corner of the photograph on the card. The corresponding list of tag agencies is posted on the DPS website at https://www.dps.state.ok.us/dls/motor_license_agents.php.
Public inquiries may be directed to the DPS Driver License Help Desk at 405-425-2020.

Veteran Logo Is Now Available On Driver License
The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety would like to remind Oklahoma veterans of the new "Veteran" logo that is available to 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.
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, a US Department of Veterans Affairs photo ID card or an Oklahoma Army or Air National Guard NGB Form 22 when renewing or obtaining their identification card or driver license.
