The Department of Public Safety is adding three more services at their megacenters, according to a news release.

The megacenters initially offered driver's license renewals and replacement services.

Now, they will include out-of-state transfers, some learner permits and original identification cards.

Anyone who has moved to Oklahoma from another state and needs to get an Oklahoma driver license or identification card can now visit the megacenter for this service.

The megacenter can now also issue learner permits, provided the customer has completed driver's education and has a certificate of completion or has taken the written (knowledge) test and passed at an Oklahoma Career Tech and has the required documentation.

The megacenter will also be able to issue first-time Oklahoma identification cards.

Residents needing a first-time driver's license will still have to visit a DPS location.

The megacenters will still offer renewals and replacement services.

So far, more than 6,000 customers have been helped in the first two weeks of operation for the Oklahoma City megacenter. More than 1,000 of those were for brand new eight-year driver's licenses and identification cards.

The Oklahoma City megacenter will operate from July 26 to Dec. 10. It is located at 1000 NE 10th Street.

The Tulsa megacenter is operating from Aug. 16 to Jan. 7, 2021. It will be located at the Kensington Business Center, 7130 S Lewis Avenue, Suite 190.

Both locations will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Both locations will operate on a walk-in basis only and both will offer the expanded services.

Driving tests and reinstatements will still need to be handled at a DPS location.
