Plenty of changes are in store for tag agencies and Department of Public Safety offices across the state.
Antiquated printers have given tag agents trouble for years, and customer service has been delayed due to breakdowns.
"Stopping to come down here is kind of a hassle," said customer Leonard Woods.
Tag agent Virginia Jones said new technology will speed up production.
"Now it takes about three minutes to run through the printer and print it'll take about a minute,” said Jones.
On Thursday, all Oklahoma Departments of Public safety will lock their doors. Workers will undergo training on the new system.
If you're from out of state and you need to register in Oklahoma, or you're looking to take the driver's test, you'll have to wait.
A couple of upgrades: if you're over 65 you won't be required to give agents a copy of your fingerprint. Jones said veterans will have a more patriotic look to their license.
"It’s really just to honor our veterans, and you won't have to carry your paper work around," said Jones.
Changes could go into effect later this week. DPS offices will be back open Friday.
