WISCONSIN
Driving Practice Test

Wisconsin is a big, beautiful state and having a Wisconsin driver’s license will let you take in the natural beauty of the entire state regardless of Wisconsin’s famous changing weather conditions–rain, sleet, or snow. So as you prepare for the Wisconsin driver’s test, you’ll want to make sure you give yourself the best chance possible to pass the test on your first try. Of course, you should be using your permit (assuming you’ve already passed the Wisconsin permit test) as you prepare for the all-important Wisconsin road test, but before you get to that point you need to pass the written knowledge portion of the exam. The Wisconsin DMV practice tests below are completely free, and you can take them as often as you like as you begin down your path to earning your license.  You will be presented with 50 questions and you must answer 40 questions correctly to pass.  There is no time limit.  You may not go back once you answer a question.  Click the “Start Quiz” button below to begin.  Good luck!

In Wisconsin, you can apply for your learner’s permit if you are 15 and 6 months old. You must be enrolled in a certified Driver’s Education course. Your driver’s education course must include 30 hours of classroom instruction, 6 hours of behind-the-wheel training, and 6 hours of in-car observation. You have to drive and document 30 hours of driving, 10 at night with an adult who is over 21 or a licensed instructor. Go to your local DMV and bring proof of name, birth date, Social Security number, school enrollment, and Wisconsin residency.
Next, fill out and turn in a Driver License Application, signed by your driver’s education instructor and your parent, or legal guardian. You must take a pass a vision test, a road sign test, and a 50 question written knowledge test. If you need special testing accommodations like an oral examination, a private room, or an interpreter, call ahead to set them up. If you fail, you can retake the test within three days with a $5.00 fee. The final step is to pay the $35 instruction permit fee.
Once you’re 16 years old and have passed your Wisconsin TEMPS test (instruction permit test), and have had your instruction permit for 6 months, and also completed Driver’s Ed, it’s time to get your probationary license. Present to your local DMV and submit the driver’s license application and have your parent or guardian sign it to accept responsibility for you. Turn in proof of name, date of birth, Social Security number, and residency, along with your driving log. Next, take a road skills test and pay the $28 fee for the probationary license. You must hold your probationary driver’s license for two years.
To obtain your unrestricted driver’s license, you must be 18 years old and have held your probationary license of two years. Go to the DMV and present your probationary license, and take a vision test. Next, fill out a new driver’s license application, and pay the $28 renewal fee. If you’re new to the state, you have 60 days to exchange your license.
You will have to go to your local DMV and surrender your old license. There is a vision test you have to pass, and if your license is expired, a written and skills test as well. You have to provide proof of identity, social security card, and proof of residency. Finally, pay the $20 license fee.

  • Practicing isn’t just for the written test. Once you’ve got your permit, use it. Getting comfortable behind the wheel is essential for performing well during your driving skills test. If you haven’t polished your skills in a low-pressure environment you may not perform well when the pressure is high.
  • Read, and re-read the Wisconsin driver’s handbook (link below). Make sure you’ve got the current year’s version and make sure you know it inside and out.
  • Have your paperwork ready to go the day before your test. Don’t put yourself in a panic trying to dig up your identification, or find your permit on the morning of your test. Get everything together the night before and have it ready to go.
