2020 Wyoming State Drivers Written Test / Knowledge Test
Before being permitted to drive / learn driving in a motor vehicle, one of the first steps is to clear a written / knowledge test that assesses your theoretical knowledge of the driving rules in the state. The test may be conducted in a Paper / Pen or a Computer based Testing mode. (A normal computer terminal or a touch screen device.) A written test covering the rules of the road and safe driving practices may be required. Questions are taken from the information in this manual. The test includes:
(1) identification of traffic signs by shape, color or symbol;
(2) identification of signals and pavement markings; and
(3) correct answers to multiple choice questions about traffic laws, safety rules, crash prevention and vehicle equipment.
Applicants for a driver’s license are allowed to take the written test twice in one day; however, if an excessive amount of questions are missed, they will have to wait until the following business day to retake the test. All tests are given in English only, so if a person cannot speak or write the English language, an interpreter may be used. Oral tests are available, but the applicant must request one prior to taking the test.
