You must have a valid driver license to legally operate a motor vehicle, motorcycle, moped, or motor-driven cycle on public roadways in Washington State. To get a driver license, you must pass the medical and vision screenings, the WA DOL knowledge test, and the driving test. The Washington DMV written test is designed to check your knowledge of road signs, road rules, traffic laws, and safe-driving practices.
