#1. You want to turn right at an intersection. A pedestrian with a guide dog is ready to cross the street in front of you. Before making the turn, you should:

Wyoming Statutes require a driver to give the right of way or yield when a blind pedestrian is carrying a clearly visible white cane or is accompanied by a guide dog.

Do not use your horn at blind pedestrians.


#2. To tow a vehicle that has a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) in excess of 10,000 pounds, you need:

The Class A license is the highest class issued. It authorizes operation of any lawful vehicle or combination of vehicles, including all B and C class vehicles except motorcycles.

The holder may operate any combination of vehicles with a gross combination weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 pounds or more. It also allows that towed vehicles have a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) in excess of 10,000 pounds.


#3. Which of the following is correct?

Use the low beams in fog or when it is snowing or raining hard. Light from high beams will reflect back, causing glare and making it more difficult to see ahead.


#4. What happens if you have four moving violations within a 12-month period?

You are allowed up to three moving violations within a 12-month period. Upon receipt of conviction for a fourth moving violation, you will be notified that your driving privilege will be suspended for 90 days. Each additional moving violation received within a 12-month period will cause an additional 90-day suspension.

Leaving the scene of an accident will result in a one-year revocation. Not having liability insurance will result in a suspension until an SR-22 insurance form has been filed with the department.


#5. What should you do at the first sign of rain?

You should slow down when the road is slippery, because stopping distances are increased. When driving on wet road, reduce speed by at least 5-10 mph. Double the time between you and the vehicle ahead. Turn on your windshield wipers, headlights, and defroster, as needed. Use your headlights on low beam.


#6. You are driving in the right-hand lane and approach this sign. What should you do?

Reduction of lanes. Right lane ends. Merge left.

Two lanes of traffic will soon become one lane of traffic. Right-lane traffic must yield when merging.


#7. This hand signal means:

Right turn – left arm extended, with elbow bent upward, at about a 90-degree angle.


#8. If you have been drinking alcohol, what will help you to sober up?

Time is the only significant factor in reducing bac levels. Approximately 90 percent of the alcohol in your body is eliminated by the liver. It is eliminated at a constant rate and this rate is about the same for all persons, about one drink per hour. It cannot be eliminated any faster. Showering, drinking coffee or exercising in an effort to sober up are useless. Only time can do the job.


#9. Which method helps you determine a safe following distance?

The two-second rule refers to a following distance. If you are driving a car, stay at least two seconds back from the vehicle ahead. The two-second following distance rule is simple to use and works at all speeds.


#10. When are you allowed to pass a school bus?

When meeting or overtaking, from either direction, a stopped school bus with flashing red lights. The driver shall not proceed until the school bus resumes motion or the flashing red lights are no longer activated.

Exception: You may pass a school bus with activated flashing red lights, only if there is a physical barrier or separate roadways between your vehicle and the school bus. You must use extreme caution, however, watching for pedestrians.


#11. If you become stranded in a snowstorm, you should:

If you are caught driving in a blizzard and end up in a ditch, or are stranded on the road, do not panic. Stay with the car so you can be found more easily.


#12. When you see a sign with this shape, color, and symbol, you must:

When you see this sign, do not drive onto that street or ramp from your direction.


#13. When entering an interstate, you should be driving:

The entrance ramp of an interstate usually takes you to an acceleration lane. Its purpose is to let you match your speed to that of Interstate traffic. As you merge, make sure you are driving about the same speed as other traffic.


#14. If oncoming traffic prevents you from making an immediate left turn, you should:

Yield to any approaching traffic close enough to be a hazard. Deciding when traffic is too close takes experience and judgment. If you have any doubt, wait for traffic to pass before turning left.


#15. If your vehicle has conventional brakes (Non-ABS), you can cause the vehicle to go into a skid if you:

Locked wheels and skids typically result when drivers jam on conventional brakes.


#16. You may continue carefully against a yellow light if:

If possible, you must stop before entering the intersection. If you cannot stop safely, you should carefully go through the intersection.


#17. What can you do to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning?

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and poisonous gas. Signs of carbon monoxide poisoning are weariness, yawning, dizziness, nausea, headache, and ringing in the ears. If you feel any of these symptoms, stop your engine and open the windows to get fresh air.

Have the exhaust system checked regularly to be sure it does not leak. Avoid parking for long periods of time with the engine running. Do not start your vehicle, or warm up the engine, in a closed garage.


#18. What should you do when you approach a bicyclist from the rear on a two-lane road?

When you are following or passing a bicyclist, the best advice is: leave plenty of room.


#19. Because it takes longer to pass a large vehicle, you should:

Be sure to pass with sufficient speed to avoid loitering in the truck driver’s blind spot (No-Zone) and simply taking too long to pass. The passenger vehicle’s position while passing makes it impossible for the truck driver to take evasive action if an obstacle appears in the road ahead.


#20. When you park on a hill headed downhill and there is no curb, you should turn your front wheels:

If you park facing uphill where there is a curb, you should set the parking brake and turn the wheels away from the curb. In any other situation, turn the wheels towards the curb or edge of the road.

Turn off the engine, take the keys and lock the car.


#21. A Crossbuck sign at a railroad crossing has the same meaning as:

As you approach any railroad crossing, slow down, look, listen, and be prepared to stop. Do not assume that a train is not coming even if you have never seen one at that crossing before. That is one of the leading causes of fatalities at railroad crossings.


#22. If you have a tire failure while driving, be sure:

If you have a tire failure while driving, be sure to slow down gently. Make no attempt to pull off the road until your vehicle is under control. Then, move to your right, out of the traffic lane as far as safely possible.


#23. Unless posted otherwise, what is the speed limit in residential areas in Wyoming?

Unless posted otherwise, the speed limit in residential areas and business areas is 30 mph.


#24. What does a solid white line between lanes mean?

White lines separate traffic going the same direction.

Broken lines indicate passing or lane changing is permitted if the way is clear. Solid white lines indicate that passing or lane changing is hazardous and discouraged.


#25. A sign with this shape means:

Four-sided diamond-shaped signs warn you of existing or possible hazards on roadways or adjacent areas.

Get the Wyoming Driver License Manual

Start studying by getting the Driver License Manual. It is must-read. All answers to your exam questions are found in this manual.

You can get a copy from your local DMV office or download a PDF version online .

The information in the manual can help you pass the examination, but the information can also help you drive safely once you get your license.

Taking Practice Tests

The passing score in Wyoming is only 76 percent, which means you must answer at least 19 of 25 questions correctly.

You should, however, aim higher on the practice tests. Try to reach a full score (100%) on a handful of tests.

But don’t just memorize questions and answers. It is a better to fully understand why an answer is correct and why another answer isn’t. It will make it easier to pass the exam. You will also keep the knowledge longer.

Who Must Take the Wyoming Knowledge Test?

If you never had a driver license in this or any other state, you must pass a written knowledge test.

You must also pass the knowledge test again if you let your license expire and have not driven for a period of two years or more.

DMV can also ask you to take all tests again after a revocation period.

Based upon personal observation, medical or vision information and other factors, a DMV representative always has the discretion to ask for a knowledge test.

Official Wyoming Knowledge Test

The knowledge test has questions related to the class of license you are applying for. Answers to all exam questions are found in the applicable driver manual.

On the test, you must identify traffic signs by shape, color, or symbol, and identify signals and pavement markings. The test also has questions regarding seat belt usage, traffic laws, safety rules, crash prevention and vehicle equipment.

You take your test on a computerized system. Applicants who have difficulty reading can ask for a headset and hear the questions through a phone system. If you prefer to use the audio system, you must ask the examiner to connect you with the system before you begin your written test.

Should you fail your first attempt, you can take the test twice in one day.


Wyoming tests are only in English. If you cannot speak English, you may use an interpreter for the written tests.
