    The Department of Public Safety is anticipating another 15-percent budget cut. If that happens, they say they will have to close 25 driver’s license exam stations across Oklahoma. Some of the notable stations include Edmond, Norman and Shawnee. The closures would force some Oklahomans to travel more than 100 miles to the nearest exam station.
