What is the legal driving age in Wyoming?
Our 13-year-old is already a total car geek, and they just can’t wait to get behind the wheel and start driving. When can I tell our teen that they’ll be old enough to drive in Wyoming?

Every parent wants to see their child have the opportunity to live out their dreams. For some kids, that dream can be as simple as getting behind the wheel of their dad’s Corvette! The legal driving age in Wyoming is 15 years old.
Here’s what you need to know:
- At the age of 15, your teen can go in to complete a written exam and vision screening. If they pass both, they’ll be eligible for a learner’s permit.
- Some 14-year-olds may be eligible for a restricted learner’s permit
Once your teen has turned 16 and has at least 10 days/50 total hours of driving experience—including 10 hours at night—they’ll be eligible to take the driving skills test. If they pass, they’ll be given a graduated driver’s license, known in Wyoming as an intermediate permit. These permits are restricted:
- You cannot have more than one passenger
- There is a curfew between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.
Once they’re 18, they’ll finally be eligible for their full class C vehicle license.
If you’re planning on letting your kids drive the family vehicle as soon as they can—which is definitely what they’re planning, by the way—then surely you’ve already considered how having a bunch of teens driving the Odyssey could affect your insurance rates.
