Oklahoma REAL ID compliance deadline extended to Oct. 10

"We will request additional extensions until we are fully compliant with the REAL ID Act".

Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap says the waiver allows Mainers to continue to use non-compliant ID cards until early October.

State officials announced Friday that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has granted an extension for Oklahomans to continue using existing state-issued identification to enter federal facilities through October 10. Otherwise, Oklahoma residents traveling by air or entering federal facilities would have to provide identification other than a state driver's license or identity card.

Tag agents have to be trained on the new process and there will be a centralized office to handle card manufacturing and storage.

The Department of Public Safety said that implementing the changes could take up to two years or more. The measure was a priority for the governor, who mentioned it in her state of the state address in February.

Preliminary work on REAL ID has begun, and PennDOT estimates REAL ID-compliant driver licenses and identification cards will be available at the customer's option in 2019.

Beginning on January 22, 2018, a driver's license or state ID from a state that is not compliant with the REAL ID Act will not be accepted to board a commercial aircraft within the United States.

To alleviate some of those concerns, lawmakers also passed legislation that prohibits the state from sharing personal information or biometric data with the federal government.
