OKLAHOMA CITY - Officials say an error has been found on some Oklahoma driver licenses and identification cards.

The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety announced Friday that the holographic security emblem that should appear on the front of each individual license or card has, in some cases, been found on the back of the cards, or not at all.

If you find that your license or ID card does not have the holographic security emblem on the front of the card, please go to the tag agency where your license or ID card was issued.

"It was apparently more widespread than we originally thought," said DPS Capt. Paul Timmons. "We're trying to get the word out to people and let them know."

The word reached Leah Kline, who was surprised to find holograms on the back of her driver's license.

"Sure, going and having to redo it is a nuisance, but everyone makes mistakes, so hopefully it's not a major issue," she said. "I just think it's kind of funny, because the license deal is already an issue."

Oklahoma's non-compliance with the Real ID Act has been well-documented.

Lawmakers have until Oct. 10 to bring state IDs up to the national standards.

In the meantime, officials say a corrected license or ID card will be issued at no charge.

If you forgot where your ID was issued, you can always check the four-digit number printed in the top right corner of the photograph on the card.

Compare that number to this list to find out which tag agency issued your license.

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.

If you have any questions, call the DPS Driver License Help Desk at 405-425-2020.
