Last week, The Department of Public Safety sent out information regarding DPS extending expiration dates of Class D licenses, Commercial Driver Licenses (CDL) licenses, State Issued ID cards and Handicap Placards. A change was posted March 24 from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) necessitating a change in the notice. The change is that DPS is extending the expiration of Commercial Driver Licenses (CDLs) and Commercial Learner Permits (CLPs) that expired on or after March 1, rather than Feb. 15.
The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety (DPS) is extending the expiration date of all Class D Driver Licenses, Commercial Driver Licenses (CDLs), Oklahoma Identification Cards and Handicap Parking Permits pursuant to Governor Stitt’s Executive Order 2020-07, declaring a State of Emergency for the State of Oklahoma.
