Wyoming Teen Auto Insurance

Like many other states, Wyoming has adopted a Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) system. This is intended to reduce the number of accidents caused inexperienced teenage drivers. The system is designed to gradually introduce inexperienced drivers to more and more driving privileges as they gain behind-the-wheel experience culminating in an official Wyoming driver license.

Wyoming Graduated Driver License Requirements
The GDL is intended for aspiring drivers at least 15 years old. The Wyoming GDL has three steps: Instruction Permit, Intermediate Permit, and Full License.

To obtain an instruction permit, the following is required:

  • Be at least 15 years old
  • Pass written and vision tests
  • Provide proof of residency, citizenship, and identity
  • Provide Social Security
  • Provide signed parental consent

The teen must hold the permit for at least six months and complete 50 hours of behind-the-wheel training, 10 of which must be at night.

Upon satisfying these requirements, the teen may apply for an Intermediate License:
  • Be at least 16 years old
  • Provide signed 40-hour Certification of Provisional License form
  • Pass road skills and vision tests
  • Provide documentation listed above
  • Provide signed release from parent or legal guardian

The teen must hold the Intermediate License for six months before they can apply for a full license at which time they must provide the above-listed documents and pass a written, vision, and road test.

Teens 14 to 16 years old, who live more than 5 miles from school or work, may apply for a special Restricted License. Under the conditions of this license, the driver may only drive between 5 am and 8 pm and the destination must be within 50 miles of the teen’s residence.

Wyoming Teen Driver Restrictions
  • Instruction Permit holders must be accompanied by a licensed driver, at least 18 years old, who must be seated in the front passenger seat at all times.
  • Intermediate License holders may not drive between 11 pm and 5 am unless accompanied by a parent, legal guardian, or licensed driver, at least 18 years old. The only exceptions to this are if the teen is driving to and from school, work, or a church-related activity.
  • Everyone in the car must wear seatbelts at all time.
  • Violating any of these conditions could result in a delay in licensing or suspension of driving privileges until the teen’s 18th birthday.
