    Take a Wyoming Drivers Ed Course

    Driver education is not mandatory. However, as an incentive for taking a state-approved driver ed class, the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) will allow you to gain full driving privileges at 16 1/2 years old. Otherwise, you must wait until you turn 17 years old. The course covers:

    • Road sign identification
    • Wyoming traffic laws
    • Foul-weather driving tips (a valuable skill in WY)
    • Defensive-driving and more

    After completing the driver ed course, you'll need verification. Obtain a certificate of completion and present it to the driver examiner when applying for a driver's license. Provided the completion certificate is from a state-approved driver education school, the examiner, in most instances, will exempt you from having to take the road test.
