Georgia and Wisconsin have announced that they are waiving road test requirements for teens age 16 and 17.

Wisconsin:

Starting May 11, road tests may be waived for 16 and 17-year-olds who complete the required training and have their parent or guardian sign a road test waiver. The young drivers must also meet the following criteria: 

  • They must hold an Instruction Permit (also known as a Learners Permit) violation-free for at least six months prior to testing
  • They must have completed driver education classes
  • They have completed behind-the-wheel training with a licensed instructor
  • They have completed at least 30 hours of driving with their parent/sponsor and their sponsor signs the road test waiver

Restrictions of a probationary graduated driver’s license still apply for at least nine months.

Georgia:

Teens aged 16 to 18 with a learner’s permit may upgrade to a provisional license by providing an affidavit from a parent, guardian, or driving instructor indicating they’ve completed at least 40 hours of supervised driving.
