second tab from left side of the page.
3. Once on the access page, you will see three different categories,
each with their own list of links below them. The three categories are:
‘Business Entities’, ‘Trademark’, and ‘Notary’. You need to choose the
‘Business Entities’ section. Below this section heading, you need to
click on the ‘Entity Search’ link -- this link will be the second one
down in the ‘Business Entities’ section.
4. Once on the ‘Business Entities’ page, you will have eight search
choices to select from: Column 1 will have the ‘Search Active’, ‘Search

all entities, name reservations, or registered agents in Oklahoma that
are assigned to the number you selected.
5. All of these search options will take you to a search form where you
can enter the name -- or part of the name -- of the entity, person, or
registered agent you are looking for. Some of these forms will also give
you a choice to select a city within Oklahoma to search.

Oklahoma that match your search query. Each search result will list the
entity’s filing number, their name, their entity type (foreign for
profit business corporation, domestic LLC, domestic trade name entity,
etc), the name type (legal, trade name, etc), the registered agent’s
name and address, and the effective date.
