Intermediate Driver License Requirements
To qualify for an intermediate license after completing our driver education course, teens must do the following:
- Have proof of completion of a driver education course, including the 55 hours of behind-the-wheel training
- Have a Learner Permit for at least 6 months
- Have no traffic convictions on their driving record
- Pass the driving skills exam
At the DPS Driver License Office
Teens under the age of 18 who have completed our driver education course should bring the following with them to the Driver License Office when applying for their intermediate driver license:
- Primary ID. This is usually a state-certified birth certificate. A complete list of acceptable primary identification documents can be found here.
- Secondary ID. This is usually a Social Security card. A complete list of acceptable secondary identification can be found here.
- Social Security Number
- Documentation that they meet the current enrollment or attendance requirements in a secondary or vocational technical school and that they have successfully passed the criterion-referenced reading test required for all eighth grade students (usually referred to as the school letter). If they cannot obtain a letter from an Oklahoma school, go here for a list of alternate documents.
- Their parent or legal guardian.
- Proof of completion of the driver education course and the behind-the-wheel training
- Any documents showing a legal name change if they’ve had a legal name change. These documents should connect all of the last names from the birth certificate to the current last name. They can read more about this here.
- A vehicle for the driving skills test, as well as proof of insurance and registration for the vehicle
- Their learner license
Note: At least one instructor must be present when the teen applies for a driver license at the Driver License Office.
As previously stated, teens must pass the driving skills test before being issued an intermediate license.
With an intermediate license, teens can drive from 5 am to 10 pm without being accompanied by a licensed driver. Teens can also drive outside the hours of 5 am to 10 pm if they are driving to or from school, church, or work-related activities OR if they are accompanied by a licensed driver who is at least 21 years old.
With an intermediate license, teens are only allowed to drive with one passenger, unless they are accompanied by a licensed driver who is at least 21 years old or unless the other passengers are people who live in the driver's home.
To get an unrestricted license that allows you to drive at any time and without passenger restrictions, you must meet the following requirements:
- Have an Intermediate License for at least 6 months
- Have no traffic convictions on your driving record
- Be at least 18 years old
- Have passed all driving and vision exams
