Do you have a "WDL" number?   If not, pre-apply HERE

Washington permits, ID cards, and licenses use a number that starts with WDL or the first 5 letters of your last name. This number is unique to you. This number identifies you. You'll use it if you start a driver training course or make an appointment to go to one of our offices. If you don't have a WDL number yet, the Dept. of Licensing will assign one to you when you pre-apply.

You may already have a WDL number if you have:

  • A valid or expired Washington ID card, permit or license
  • Already filled out an application on our website.
  • Gotten a ticket in the past, like minor in possession or driving without a license.​

The KNOWLEDGE TEST is a  40 question, multiple choice test based  on the WA Driver Guide.     Applicants must answer 32 questions correctly to pass (a score of 80%).

The test is provided to us by the Dept. of Licensing and we are licensed by the DOL to administer the test.                                                                                                                                                                                                  We cannot coach, teach, instruct, hint, put into our own words or review any part of the knowledge test!


The best way to successfully pass the test is to study the WA Driver Guide!!                                       Information is here:   Washington Driver Guide on the Department of Licensing website or pick up a guide at any Dept. of Licensing office (on Wynne St. in Colville).
