What is the minimum age to get a Temporary Instruction Permit or a Driver's License in Wisconsin?
In Wisconsin, the minimum age requirements for driving are set by the state. You must be at least 15 years old to apply for a Temporary Instruction Permit, often referred to as a learner's permit. To obtain a full Driver's License, the minimum age is 16. These age requirements are part of Wisconsin's Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) laws, which are designed to help new and young drivers gain skills and experience safely.
What documents does my child need to bring to the Wisconsin DMV to get their instruction permit?
To apply for an instruction permit (also known as a learner's permit) at the Wisconsin Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), your child will need to provide several documents. First, they will need the MV3001 form, which is provided by Easy Method Driving School. They will also need to bring proof of identity, such as a certified copy of their birth certificate or a valid US passport. Finally, they will need to show their Social Security card or a valid photo student ID card from their high school.
How long does my child need to drive with their instruction permit in Wisconsin?
In Wisconsin, regardless of their age (under 18), once your child obtains their instruction permit, they are required to drive with it for a minimum period of 6 months. This is part of the state's Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) laws, which aim to give new drivers ample time to practice and gain experience on the road under supervision before they get their full driver's license.
When can my child start their behind-the-wheel driving lessons in Wisconsin?
In Wisconsin, your child can start their behind-the-wheel driving lessons once they meet a few requirements. They must be at least 15 years old, have taken or are currently taking the classroom portion of our driving education program, and have their instruction permit. Once these conditions are met, they can schedule their driving lessons. Please note that the first lesson must be scheduled within the first 60 days of your child receiving their instruction permit.
How to cancel a scheduled behind-the-wheel lesson?
To cancel a scheduled behind-the-wheel lesson, simply contact our main office at the location where you are taking the lessons. Inform them that you need to cancel and reschedule. It's important to note that cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance to avoid a "no show" fee.
We have provided detailed instructions to your son or daughter on how to schedule their behind-the-wheel lessons. We believe that driving a car is a significant responsibility, so we encourage your son or daughter to take the initiative and schedule their own lessons.
Please be aware that behind-the-wheel lessons cannot be canceled via email or text message.
Can teens who have completed the Classroom portion at a different driving school take the Behind the Wheel portion of their driver's education program with us?
Yes, we offer the Behind the Wheel course as part of our comprehensive driver's education program in Wisconsin. Teens who have completed the Classroom portion at a different driving school can fulfill the state requirements by completing our program. The program includes a minimum of 6 hours of Behind the Wheel Training and 6 hours of observation.
To enroll in the Behind the Wheel course, the student must provide a completion certificate showing that the entire Classroom portion has been completed.

Alternatively, they can come to our main office to take the test and then proceed to the DMV to receive the temporary permit upon passing the test. Please note that a $90.00 deposit is required to receive the MV3001 permit application form.
