Oklahoma Plate Scanners

By Brandon L. Guidry  |  March 14, 2018

Oklahoma has contracted with the vendor Gatso USA to scan (using cameras) motorists’ license plates to determine whether auto insurance coverage is in place. The plates will be matched against the state’s verification system. If the vehicle is found to be uninsured, the owner will be mailed a citation with a penalty of $184. Motorists who pay the fine will not have a charge of driving without insurance on their permanent record.

The new plate-scanning system, named the Uninsured Vehicle Enforcement Diversion Program, will be rolled out as early as this year.
