While you can renew your driver’s license by mail, you’ll have to go to a Department of Transportation Driver’s Services Office in person to obtain your license for the first time.

Getting a license for the first time

First time getting your driver’s license? Here’s everything you need to know.

Age 15 to 17

Wyoming has a graduated licensing program for teens. At 15, teens may apply for an instructional permit or learner’s permit to allow them to practice driving and to attend a driver’s education course. To obtain a learner’s permit, the teen must go to a driver services exam station with the appropriate documents, take a written and vision test, and be photographed. Their parent also must sign the application. With a learner’s permit, the minor can drive only with a licensed adult driver in the front seat with them.

The next step is an intermediate permit. When young drivers have completed 50 hours of practice driving and pass the driving skill test, they are eligible for an intermediate permit. The intermediate permit has these restrictions:

  • You cannot drive between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.
  • You cannot have more than one passenger under age 18 unless they are members of your immediate family, or you have a licensed adult driver on the front seat with you

Once your reach age 17 or age 16 1/2 if you’ve had a driver’s education course, you are eligible for a regular driver’s license.

Age 17+
  • The details: If you’re at least 17 years old and ready to get behind the wheel, the process at the Department of Transport Driver Services office is smooth and simple.
  • What to bring: Pack up your ID documents and $40.
  • What you’ll need to do: You’ll need to take a vision test and knowledge test. You’ll then receive a learner’s permit to allow you to practice driving. You must keep the learner’s permit at least 10 days before you can apply for your license; the permit is good for up to a year.
  • What comes next: When you’re ready, you take the road test and receive your regular driver’s license.

Renewing your license

You may renew by mail every other time (or once in a 10-year period.) Otherwise, you’ll need to renew in-person. To renew by mail, send your application form and the fee to: Driver Services-WYDOT, 5300 Bishop Blvd, Cheyenne, WY 82009-3340.

To renew in person take your application and identity documents to a Drivers Service Office.

Do you need a Real ID?

Do you have to get a Real ID? Nope. Will you want one? Probably.

Starting October 1, 2021, your standard driver’s license will no longer be accepted as proof of identification at airports. You’ll need a passport or a Real ID instead. Real IDs require additional identity documentation.

Replace a lost or stolen license

If you’ve lost your license, you can replace it by mail or in-person. Going in-person will be the fastest way. Bring your identity documents, application, and $40 fee to a Driver Service office. If you want to replace your license by mail, send the application and fee to
