Wisconsin Permit Practice Test FAQs:

What questions are on the Wisconsin permit test?

The Wisconsin DMV written permit test features questions based on topics found within the DMV driver’s manual. Expect to answer questions on sharing the road, following distances, speed limits, pavement markings, and more.

What’s the difference between a WI permit test and a WI license test?

In Wisconsin, you must first earn an instruction permit before you can earn a driver’s license if you’ve never been licensed anywhere before. The Wisconsin permit test is a written knowledge exam showing that you’ve learned enough to start practicing driving under supervision. The license test comes after you’ve practiced driving, and is a practical (i.e., behind-the-wheel) road exam where you demonstrate that you are a safe and responsible driver.

How do I earn my Wisconsin instruction permit?

To earn your Wisconsin instruction permit, you must be at least 15 years old and pass a written general knowledge exam on Wisconsin’s traffic laws. You’ll need to hold your permit for a specific period of time based on your age before you’ll be allowed to test for your full Wisconsin driver’s license—for teens 15 to 17 years old, that’s 6 months; for adults 18 and over, it’s 7 days.
