Beginner Drivers in Wisconsin

Getting behind the wheel of a car or other motor vehicle is a privilege, and requires a clear understanding of the rules of the road, along with the ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. To drive legally in the State of Wisconsin, you will need a valid driver's license, car insurance, and a properly registered and titled vehicle..

LEARNER'S PERMIT

For many new drivers, the first step in getting a learner's permit is to go to some form of Driver's Education then taking the knowledge test. If you do not enrol in a driver's education program, you can obtain a learner's permit later by directly taking the written knowledge test.

THE WRITTEN KNOWLEDGE TEST

The majority of new drivers in Wisconsin are required to pass a written knowledge test, whether when applying for an instruction permit or a driver's license. The test is administered at a local driver licensing office, and covers basic rules of the road and safety procedures.

You can prepare for the test by studying the wisconsin Drivers Guide, by taking practice tests, and by reviewing study guides . You must pass the knowledge exam before scheduling a driving exam.

THE DRIVING EXAM

The next step after the knowledge test is the driving test. Before taking the driving test, you should practice driving with a certified instructor or qualified licensed adult. A lot of beginner drivers enrol in either a driver's education program or a licensed driving school to further their driving skills.As well, it should be noted that the car you use in the driving test must have proper auto insurance.

GETTING YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE

Passing the knowledge and driving exams are the key steps for receiving a driver's license in Wisconsin. New drivers must also fill out an application, provide proof of identity and residence, and pay the appropriate fee. See our Applying for a License for more specific information on the process in Wisconsin.

INSURANCE AND REGISTRATION

It is illegal to drive an uninsured car in the state of wisconsin, and therefore new drivers must ensure that they have the proper amount and type of insurance required by the State. Note that young drivers can often be covered under their parent or guardian's insurance policy. Taking a driver's education program or a licensed driving school can often reduce insurance payments. For more info, or to obtain competitive auto insurance quotes, see out our Auto Insurance section.

In addition, beginner drivers planning to get their own car have to ensure the vehicle is registered and titled before taking it on the road.
