TULSA, Okla. — The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety (DPS) announced new features when they relaunched the Mobile ID app in January, including the ability to pre-enroll for the federally mandated REAL ID.

The upcoming deadline to get REAL ID is October 1, 2021. DPS anticipates a surge for in-person visits related to REAL ID, so the app is a way to improve customer satisfaction and reduce people at their physical locations.

“The Mobile ID App pre-enrollment function is one of the solutions we’ve identified to streamline the REAL ID process. We encourage Oklahomans who need a REAL ID to take advantage of this time-saving service,” said DPS Commissioner John Scully.

By adding the in-app feature, Oklahomans can now start the process of enrolling for a REAL ID in the safety of their homes. People can use the app's checklist to make sure they have the correct documents and answer a brief questionnaire.

Over 35,000 Oklahomans downloaded Mobile ID since the app's relaunch. The tutorial can be found on YouTube to pre-enroll for the REAL ID on the Mobile ID app.

To schedule an in-person appointment, Oklahoma residents can obtain the REAL ID at a DPS location or the nearest approved tag agency.
