Okla. hopes to speed up driver’s license process | News
OKLAHOMA CITY—It can be a hassle when it comes to getting your driver’s license.
However, the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety says it is creating a new service that can speed up the process.
Inline/Online is a new online scheduling system that allows customers to make appointments online and avoid the wait time.
Officials say by using the service, they predict drivers can be in and out the door in less than an hour.
“We realize there is a problem. We know the public is frustrated with long wait times at DL testing sites across Oklahoma.” said DPS Commissioner, Michael C. Thompson. “We understand the frustration and are very hopeful that Inline/Online will help to reduce wait times and make our process more efficient for the public.”
Implementation of the program begins this week at certain locations.
The launch dates for the program is as follows:
- Oklahoma City Southwest- March 26
- Edmond- March 26
- Yukon-March 28
- Norman- March 28
- Tulsa Eastgate- April 4
- West Tulsa-April 11
- Broken Arrow- April 11
There are plans to expand the service to include all Oklahoma Driver license locations across the state.
Online appointments will be available at each location on the pilot date in 15 minute intervals beginning 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
