- Teens can obtain a permit in WI at age 15.
- Teens will not be allowed to apply for their probationary license until they are at least 16 years old, hold their permit for at least 6 months ticket free, practice hours of at least 50 hours and 10 of those at night, and have completed all of driver education (classroom and behind the wheel lessons).
- Another change is that the permit will be good for 18 months instead of 12 months. The DMV has not announced when they will sunset the parental road test waiver; however the waiver program is ending and all 16-17 year olds will have to take the road test.
- The new law changes the number of practice hours required during the permit phase from 30 hours to 50 hours. The DMV does not collect the practice driving record when teens go for their road test however they may ask to see it or the Road Ready app which also tracks practice time.
- Your teen should work toward at least 100 hours of practice with 30 of those at night based on national recommendations put forth by AAA Foundation research in order to give novice drivers more experience before licensing (shows it reduces crashes after licensing). Our common goal for everyone is to have fewer crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving teens and all other drivers. Use of the Road Ready app is a great tool for them to track their progress of practice hours.
