Drivers Permits in Wyoming

The Wyoming Department of Transportation (DOT) is responsible for issuing of driver’s permits. The state has implemented a graduated driver licensing (GDL) program aimed at helping teens become more responsible drivers.

Obtaining your learner’s permit is the first milestone in the GDL program. While holding your learner’s permit you can begin driving and practicing for your test but under supervision.
