Oklahoma Provisional License: A Step-by-Step Guide

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Oklahoma uses a graduated licensing program helping teens and new drivers get behind-the-wheel. The program educates drivers through testing while providing ample behind-the-wheel experience before they begin driving by themselves.

Until this point, you may have received your OK driving permit.

In this post, you’ll learn how to upgrade the learner’s permit into a provisional license.

Applying for a Provisional License in Oklahoma

Oklahoma’s GDL program includes a provisional license.

Those in the program typically begin upgrading to a provisional when they turn 16.

You must also pass requirements like:

  • Driver’s ed
  • Behind-the-wheel experience
  • Held a learner’s for at least 6 months
  • Have a clean driving record

What are the steps to upgrade an Oklahoma learner’s permit to a provisional license?

  1. Make an appointment to take your road test
  2. Show your learner’s permit
  3. Provide your Affidavit of Driver Training (DPS 300)
    1. Parent/Guardian present or signed and notarized form
  4. Show proof of ID
    1. Primary
    2. Secondary
  5. Pay the fees
    1. Application fee: $4
    2. License fee: $38.50

Note: Provide the vehicle’s registration and proof of insurance when taking the road test.

Pass the driving test, complete these steps, and you’ll have your provisional license! Congratulations, you’re one step closer to getting your unrestricted license.

Driving Restrictions with a Provisional License

You are now free to drive on your own between 4:30 AM and 9:00 PM.

Otherwise, a parent or guardian must be present during the off-hours.

You can only have up to 1 non-family passenger during this time.
