Frequently Asked Questions - Taking Your WI Driving Exam (Or Road Test)

If you fail the WI Driving Exam, you will not receive your WI Driver's License. You will be able to retake the test, but the wait time in between road tests vary depending on the errors you made during the exam. You have five opportunities to take the WI Driving Exam within a year. If you fail the WI Road Test five times within a year, you will need to receive additional driving instruction and demonstrate proof of that instruction. You should not rush retaking the WI Driving Exam after you have failed. You should pay attention to what your examiner indicates as your weaknesses, and you should work upon improving your weaknesses.
A licensed driver should accompany you. If you are under 18 just be sure to bring proof of sponsorship and that you have completed a Driver's Education course.
If you are under 18, you will need to bring your WI Learner's Permit, a driving log sheet that proves the hours of behind-the-wheel training that you completed and a document proving that you have attended and completed a Driver's Education course. You will also need to bring the WI Driving Exam's $15 fee.
Your examiner wants to see that you are capable of driving safely and effectively. During your WI Driving Exam, you want to make sure that you are not driving too quickly or too slowly; you want to accelerate smoothly and gradually. Obey all stop signs and traffic signals, do not tailgate other vehicles and stay in the correct lane. You should also know what various street signs and traffic signals indicate to drivers on the road.
You should avoid driving dangerously, driving too quickly, hitting other objects, forgetting to signal, rolling stops and parking incorrectly. Always maintain good posture and signal well in advance.
If you wear contacts or glasses regularly to be able to see clearly, you should absolutely wear your corrective lenses during your exam.
Only you and your examiner are allowed in the car during your WI Driving Exam. The only exception to this rule is if you need a foreign language interpreter.
