Do I have to get a REAL ID-compliant card to be able to notarize a document?
No. Oklahoma allows individuals to choose between a REAL ID driver’s license/ID card and a non-compliant driver’s license/ID card. If a person chooses to get a non-compliant license or card, they will need to present alternative forms of identification, such as a U.S. passport, accepted by the agency or facility in question. Some agencies or facilities may have additional requirements to accommodate individuals lacking the correct ID documents. It is a good idea to have two forms of identification when signing a loan. The Patriot Act requires two forms of ID.
Acceptable primary forms of identification are:
- Valid Driver’s License
- Valid State issued ID card (must include photo)
- Military ID
- Social Security Card
Acceptable secondary forms of identification are:
- Birth Certificate
- Medicare Card
- Student ID
- Voter Registration Card
- Credit Card
- Consular ID card
NOTE IF TRAVELLING: Non-compliant licenses/cards will NOT be accepted by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) when boarding a commercial aircraft, starting October 1, 2021.TSA currently accepts other forms of identity documents, such as passports or permanent residency cards, and will continue to do so.
