How does my 16-year-old obtain a Wisconsin driver’s license?

To earn a probationary driver’s license as a teen, you must hold an instruction permit for at least 6 months. Within this time, you must fulfill the following requirements to qualify.

  • You must be at least 16 years old.
  • You must have an adult sponsor.
  • You must pass an approved drivers education course.
  • You must be free of any traffic violations for 6 months.
  • You must accumulate 30 hours of behind-the-wheel driving experience, with 10 of those hours being at night.
  • You must be enrolled in school or have graduated from high school.

Upon fulfilling all these requirements, you can then apply for a probationary license.
