OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The agency that issues Oklahoma driver licenses is starting a pilot program in which people go online to make appointments with a driver license examiner.

Department of Public Safety officials said Thursday that if the program works, it could eliminate lines at examining offices.

The Oklahoman reports that three offices became pilot sites where people can make appointments via computer or smartphone. The offices are in Edmond, Oklahoma City and Tulsa.

Residents also can use the online system to make appointments for license renewal and out-of-state transfers sites in Broken Arrow, Norman and Tulsa.

Officials say that if the pilot program works, the system can be expanded throughout the state.
