Scheduling your Permit Test or your Road Test: 

In Wayne County, you may take the road test on Mondays before lunch and the written permit test on Mondays after lunch.  Call the Circuit Clerk's office @ 348-5841  for more information or to schedule an appointment.  


What do I need when I get my permit? 

The Wayne County Circuit Clerk's office will need the following information:

  • Parent / Guardian Signature (If someone other than your parents has custody of you, then you will also need to bring the court-order stating custody)
  • Social Security Card
  • Birth Certificate 
  • Proof of Address 
  • School-Compliance Form  To obtain the "permit form" / "compliance form" to verify that your student is eligible to obtain his or her permit, please call or stop by the WCHS guidance office (348-5575 or 348-8607).  We will verify your child's grades and attendance (from the previous semester) and give you the form if your child is compliant.  



Are you eligible to get your permit AND keep it?  Are you eligible to keep your license?

The No Pass/No Drive law (HB 32) was implemented on August 1, 2007. In the new legislation, this law will apply to ALL students 16 and 17 years old who apply for a permit or license on or after August 1, 2007.

It is important to understand that when a sixteen or seventeen year old goes to the circuit court clerk’s office to obtain a permit, a School Compliance Verification Form must be presented verifying that the student is in compliance with KRS 159.051.

The School Compliance Verification Form may be picked up in the Wayne County High School Counselor's Office for students enrolled at Wayne County High School.

In order for a student to be in compliance with the law and receive the verification form, they must be passing 5 out of 7 classes the previous school semester and also does not have 9 unexcused absences.

If a sixteen or seventeen year old does not present a school compliance verification form he/she will not be eligible to obtain a permit.

When a sixteen or seventeen year old student drops out of school, has 9 unexcused absences in a semester, or is declared to be academically deficient (not passing 4 out of 5 classes), the schools will report electronically to the Division of Driver Licensing. The Division of Driver Licensing will suspend the student’s privilege to drive and notify the driver of the suspension.

The schools will also report when a student is back in compliance, at the end of each semester, with KRS 159.051 to the Division of Driver Licensing. The Division of Driver Licensing will reinstate the student’s driving privilege.
