Easing the pain of long lines

Things to do before you even arrive at a driver's license exam site:

• Bring both a primary form of identification, such as a certified birth certificate or passport, and a secondary form of identification, such as a Social Security card, motor vehicle registration or some other form of photo ID.

• Present insurance verification and your Social Security number before taking the test.

• Once those documents have been accepted, take a vision test and written test before scheduling the driving test. Those initial tests can be scheduled ahead of time online at www.ok.gov/dps/scheduler/service.uii. The online site also will accommodate those looking to get a basic identification card, a learner's permit or an out-of-state transfer.

• To take the driving test, show up at a testing site in person. Generally, it's best to show up several hours before doors open at 7 a.m., but with Saturday testing currently an option, you can plan to stop in any time of the day — so long as you don't mind waiting a couple weeks to take the test.

• Get more specific information online at www.dps.state.ok.us/dls.
