Teen Driver Safety: Learn about Wisconsin's Graduated Driver License

What is GDL and why is it important for new teen drivers? Steps for earning the instruction permit, probationary license and regular license are explained in this video. Wisconsin's GDL law reduces risk by making sure teens gradually build driving experience under lower risk conditions. We all share the common goal of supporting safe teen drivers, which is why awareness of the GDL law is important for everyone to reduce the risks on the road.




Teen Driver Safety: Practice Matters

How good are you at anything after only 30 hours of practice? Wisconsin's GDL Law states that 30 hours is the minimum amount of time spent practicing behind the wheel before teens can take their driving skills test. Whether it’s playing an instrument or learning a new sport, the more you practice, the better you become. When it comes to driving, practice matters.
