The request to extend the date for Oklahoma to become compliant with the Real ID Act has been denied.

On Tuesday, the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety denied the State of Oklahoma’s request to extend the time to become compliant with the Real ID Act.

Now, starting January 30, 2017, those with Oklahoma licenses will not be able to use them in federal agencies.

Basically that means that anyone using an Oklahoma license will have to have a form of identification that is REAL ID compliant to enter a federal building, facility, military base, courthouse, etc.
