Anyone who operates a motor vehicle or motor-driven cycle on public roadways in Wisconsin is required to have a valid driver license. If you have not previously held a driver license, you must first get a learner’s permit at a DMV Service Center. To get an instruction permit, you must be at least 15 years, six months of age, and pass the knowledge and highway signs tests and vision screening. The Wisconsin written test covers the contents of the WI DMV Driver’s Manual, and includes questions on road rules, road signs and safe driving practices.
