WisDOT offers new ways to obtain driver licenses
For the City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) has announced two pilot programs.
Eligible persons with a Wisconsin driver license will be able to renew it online.
Individuals under age 18, who successfully complete their required training and have the endorsement of a parent or guardian will be able to get their probationary driver license without completing a road test.
“The Division of Motor Vehicles has been at the forefront of making changes to protect the public and our associates during the public health emergency, while continuing to provide vital public services,” Secretary-designee Craig Thompson said. “These pilot programs represent innovative solutions to help Wisconsin address challenges created by the pandemic.”
The pilot programs begin May 11.
Each program eliminates the need for in-person visits to a DMV service center by enabling drivers to complete the tasks online.
