OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety has announced that an error has been found on some Oklahoma driver licenses and identification cards. The holographic security emblem that should appear on the front of each individual license or card may, in some instances, appear on the back or not at all.

License holders and ID card holders are asked to examine their documents to make sure the image appears on the front.

DPS officials say the licenses and ID cards with incorrect or missing images are still considered valid, but will likely cause delays when the holder attempts to use them for personal identification in places such as airports, banks or federal buildings.

Those who have licenses or ID cards with incorrect images are encouraged to return to the tag agency where the document was issued. The state will replace the card at no charge. DPS urges people with incorrect cards to replace them as soon as possible.

To confirm which tag agency issued the faulty license or ID card, check the four-digit number printed at the top right corner of the photograph on the card.

You can find a list of tag agencies on the DPS website.

You can also call the DPS Driver License Help Desk at 405-425-2020.
