As of this morning, the Wisconsin DMV said that starting on May 11th, teens can receive a waiver on the driving portion of their license application if they have completed driver education classes and have their parents' permission.
Parents will need to complete forms to verify their teens have completed the necessary driving requirements.
“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.”
As many as 10,000 teens have been waiting to receive their licenses since the outbreak of the coronavirus, officials said.
