Wyoming Learner's Permit FAQ

Applying for Your WY License

What are the age requirements for getting started?

Wyoming’s Graduated Driver’s Licensing Program (GDL) requires teens to earn their full license in stages in an attempt to reduce the risk associated with first-time drivers. The age requirements and stages are:

  • 15 years old – Learner’s Permit
  • 16 years old – Intermediate Driver’s License
  • 16 ½ years old with driver’s ed – Full Driver’s License
  • 17 years old with no driver’s ed – Full Driver‘s License

Please note: a restricted Learner’s Permit is also offered to teens 14 to 15 years old who meet certain “extreme circumstances,” such as living more than five miles from school.

What documents am I required to bring with me when applying for a license in Wyoming?

  • Proof of identity and legal presence – here are acceptable documents
  • Form FSDL-705 – Wyoming Driver License Application
  • $20 for fee

Where do I file my WY driver’s license application?

You can apply in person at a Wyoming Department of Transportation Driver Exam Station.

How can I contact my local office?

Visit https://www.dot.state.wy.us/home/driver_license_records/license_locations.html for office locations, hours and contact information.

Do I have to take a Driver’s Ed Course?

In Wyoming driver’s ed is not required but by taking it you can earn your full license earlier than those who do not take it.

What if I am new to Wyoming?

If you already have a driver’s license, you will have one year to transfer it to a Wyoming license – unless you are from Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, Tennessee or Wisconsin in which case you need to transfer it immediately.

What subjects are commonly covered on the written test?

The Wyoming written test requires you to identify traffic signs by shape, color or symbol; identify signals and pavement markings; and provide correct answers to multiple choice questions about traffic laws, safety rules, crash prevention and vehicle equipment. Here are two examples of content from the manual that you could be asked questions about on the written test:

  • Even though there are individuals who regularly drink to relatively high BACs that do not show any of the outward signs, they still increase their chances of being in a crash if they drive with a BAC of 0.02 percent or higher
  • Starting your car moving on snow and ice requires slow, steady and careful acceleration and front wheels that are pointed straight ahead

How is the test formatted?

The Wyoming written test is delivered in multiple choice format.

Are there a lot of “trick” questions on the written test?

Questions on the test are not intended to “trick you” but rather to verify you have the knowledge to drive safely. That being said, the more you study the Wyoming Driver’s Manual the less “tricky” the questions will sound. In other words, if you study the manual thoroughly you should have no problem on the test. But if you do not study the manual, the questions could seem “tricky” and leave you unsure of which answer is correct.

How many questions are on the test and how many do I need to answer correctly to pass?

There are 25 questions on the test and you must answer at least 19 of them correctly to pass.

What are the best ways to prepare for the written test?

You should start by reading and studying the Wyoming Driver’s Manual. Once you are confident you know the material you should take online practice tests to verify that you do know the content. You can use the practice tests to identify weak areas and direct your future studies.

Where can I get a free Wyoming Driver’s Manual to study?

We offer Wyoming Driver’s Manuals for free here on this website.

How can I improve my odds for passing the first time I take the test?

Be sure to study traffic signs, signals and pavement markings. Try to memorize numerical data such measurements, lengths and distances. Take practice tests to see what areas you are strong in and what areas you are weak in and then adjust your study efforts accordingly.

What should I do the night before the test?

We recommend that you review the Wyoming Driver’s Manual and that you take a practice test to ensure you have the knowledge necessary to pass. If you miss a question on a particular subject on the practice test be sure to go to that section of the handbook and study it. You should also plan on going to bed early and getting a good night’s sleep so that you are rested and at your best for the test the next day.

How to Get Your Wyoming Learner’s Permit in 2021

Earning your learners permit in Wyoming is a huge step towards getting your full license. The process can be complex, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming or confusing. Our easy-to-follow guide will help you every step of the way, from preparing for the permit test to applying for a Full License.  Let’s get started!

Wyoming is like most states in that all young drivers are required to complete a Graduated Driver’s License Program (GDL), a multi-stage process has been statistically shown to reduce the number of accidents caused by young and inexperienced drivers. The GDL process will allow you to gain crucial driving skills while remaining under supervision.

In Wyoming, the GDL process features three stages:

  • Learner’s Permit
  • Intermediate Permit
  • Full License

Learner’s Permit

When you are 15 years old, you are eligible to apply for your Learner’s Permit. To do so, you must pass a written driver’s exam (or permit test), which will check your awareness of traffic law and road signs.

Study Hard to Ensure Success

It’s important to devote plenty of time to study if you want to pass the permit test on the first try. We offer a free copy of the Wyoming Driver’s Handbook for you to use in your studies. Commit to reading the entire thing, and go back over any sections you don’t feel entirely comfortable with.

The Wyoming DOT Test — What You Need to Know

Before you can explore the streets and highways of Wyoming, you will need to get your learners permit and that means passing the Wyoming permit test.  The Wyoming permit test is a multiple choice written test administered by the Wyoming Department of Transportation (DOT).  The test features questions on the rules of the road, Wyoming traffic laws, and a variety of road signs.

Commit to Passing Practice Tests

If you don’t take practice exams before trying the real thing, you’re missing out on a good resource for learning. Our Wyoming practice permit test features many of the same topics you will find on the actual exam, and taking it will increase your chances of doing well.

Visit the Wyoming State Department of Transportation (DOT) Offices and do Your Testing

When you feel prepared, visit the DOT offices, bringing along:

  • Your birth certificate, U.S. passport or other identifying documents.
  • Your Social Security card.
  • Two proofs of residency, such as a bank statement or telephone bill.
  • $20 in fees.

The permit test should be relatively easy as long as you have studied properly. When you pass, you will also be given a vision test to ensure you can see well enough to drive. You will also take a photograph for your driver’s license at this time, so be sure to wear a shirt that you like!

Begin Your Practice Driving

While holding your Instruction Permit, you must practice driving for at least 50 hours while under the supervision of a licensed driver age 18 or older. Of those hours, 10 must take place at night.

Intermediate Permit

When you are 16 years old, you have held your permit for at least 10 days, and you have completed your required practice driving, you can apply for your Intermediate Permit. This requires that you pass a behind-the-wheel driving test. When you are ready, visit any DOT testing location, bringing along:

  • Your Instruction Permit.
  • Your parent or guardian.
  • The same identity and residency proofs you used before.
  • A registered and insured vehicle to use for the test.
  • Signed proof that you completed your practice driving.
  • $20 in fees.

The driving test will check how well you maintain control of your vehicle and pay attention to traffic law. Try to stay calm and remember everything you’ve been practicing, and you will be sure to do well. When you pass, you will be given another vision exam.

Your Intermediate Permit comes with some restrictions. Unless supervised by a licensed adult driver, you may not:

  • Drive between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.
  • Drive with more than one unrelated passenger under the age of 18.
  • Drive without safety belts or with passengers who are not wearing safety belts.

Driver’s License

You must hold your Intermediate Permit for at least six months. Driver’s education is not required in Wyoming, but many young drivers choose to take it at this time. With an approved driver’s education course, you may get your Full License at 16 and a half years old. If you want to skip the course, the restrictions will be removed from your license at 17 years old.

Additional Information

Certain teens in Wyoming have the option of applying for a Restricted Learner’s Permit, also known as a “Hardship Permit,” which allows drivers as young as age 14 to drive in certain circumstances. To qualify for this permit, you must meet one of the following standards:

  • You must live more than five miles of the school you attend.
  • You must have a regular job that is more than five miles from your home.
  • You must drive in order to work in the family business.
  • You must face other difficult circumstances that demonstrate a need to drive.
