House Passes Bill to Address REAL ID, Drivers’ License Needs

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma House of Representatives today gave final approval to a bill supporting tag agencies helping Oklahomans become REAL ID compliant. Senate Bill 1057 also adds renewal options of four and eight years.

The bill was presented on the House floor Thursday afternoon by Rep. Dell Kerbs, R-Shawnee.

“After reviewing and working through the complications that our tag agencies are facing, we’ve learned that it takes a well-trained tag agent between 15 and 20 minutes to process each customer’s credentials through federal regulations,” Kerbs said. “We have many tag agents across the state who are doing a great job, and they should be commended for their work. I strongly encourage agencies that opted out to again provide the great services they are known for.”

“Moving forward, we want to be sure to get all agents back to providing the same great services, and I believe Senate Bill 1057 will get us there,” Kerbs continued.

SB1057 previously passed the Senate 48-0. Having passed the House 92-1, it now moves to the Governor’s desk for consideration.
