Probationary Driver's License

A probationary license is a driver license issued to a beginning driver, valid for operation according to the restrictions on the back.

The Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) issues a probationary license to new drivers, persons with a driver license from another country who pass the required tests, persons reinstating a revoked or canceled probationary license and new residents who surrender a license that is expired for more than six months, or who have less than three years of driving experience or who are under the age of 21.

The main difference between a probationary license and a regular license consists of the restrictions listed on the back. A probationary license is not an instruction permit or learner's permit. It is a valid driver license for operation within and outside of Wisconsin.

With a probationary license, demerit points double for moving traffic convictions after your first conviction. Your license will be suspended for six months if you accumulate 12 or more points within a 12-month period.

Probationary licenses are issued to expire two years from the applicant's next birthday. For example, if a new driver is 16 years old on the date they obtain their probationary license, the earliest that license would expire would be on their 19th birthday.

The expiration date of a license for a non-immigrant foreign visitor will depend on the applicant's length of authorized stay.

Probationary License Requirements

Wisconsin residents UNDER 18 years of age may obtain a probationary driver license if they fulfill the following requirements:

  • Are at least 16 years old.
  • Have passed an approved driver education course.
  • Have an adult sponsor.
  • Complete a Wisconsin Driver License Application MV 3001 — including your Social Security number.
  • Provide proof of citizenship or legal status in the United States.
  • Provide proof of name and date of birth.
  • Provide proof of identity.
  • Have held an Instruction Permit for at least six months.
  • Have been violation free for six months.
  • Have 30 hours of driving experience (10 of which must be at night).
  • Are enrolled in a school program or high school equivalency program and are not a habitual truant, or have graduated from high school or been granted a declaration of high graduation equivalency, or are enrolled in a home-based private education program.
  • Pass the driving skills test.
  • Pay the necessary fees.
