Long Description:
Edmond's DPS, and soon after two Edmond Tag Agencies, will now be issuing Real IDs. Applicants will leave with a temporary paper license, and the Real ID will be mailed to them.

Article text:

The Department of Public Safety will begin issuing Real ID to the public on Monday, June 29 at select locations.

Officials said Oklahomans will be able to get a Real ID at the main DPS location at 3600 N. Martin Luther King Avenue as well as the Edmond DPS location at 28 East Main St.

Crews will also begin installing the new equipment at two Edmond tag agencies and citizens will be able to get a Real ID at those locations by mid-morning. The locations are: Edmond Tag Agency at 2 West First St. and Broadway Tag Agency at 3900 South Broadway.

On Tuesday, the equipment will be installed at two additional Edmond tag agencies: Santa Fe Tag Agency at 338 South Santa Fe Ave. and Woodcrest Tag Agency at 14700 South Coltrane Road.

Oklahomans can make an appointment to visit a DPS location by going to ok.gov/dps and clicking on "Online Services." If all appointments are booked, our locations are accepting walk-ins. Please remember that we are still requiring masks inside our facilities as well as limiting the number of people inside to allow for social distancing.

The agency is encouraging anyone whose license is not expiring soon to wait before coming in to get a Real ID.

Officials said DPS is moving to central issuance with Real ID. That means people will walk out of the office with a temporary, paper driver license. The actual Real ID will come in the mail 7-10 business days later.

The Edmond locations are being brought on as part of phase two of the pilot testing program for Real ID. Phase two will last two weeks and then the production of REAL ID will begin spreading to additional locations across the state, officials said. The next location to receive the new equipment will be the DPS location in south Oklahoma City at 728 East Interstate 240 Service Road along with several surrounding tag agencies. Real ID will then go from there to Tulsa locations.

Citizens must have proof of identity (like a passport or certified birth certificate), proof of social security (like a Social Security card or W2) and two proofs of residency (like a mortgage or lease agreement or utility bill.) Anyone who has had a name change for reasons like marriage, divorce or adoption will need to bring in proof of that name change.
