How to get a WA Drivers License

To get a Washington driver’s license, an applicant is required to pass both the written/ knowledge and skills/ drive test. 1 BAL DRIVING SCHOOL, LLC is authorized by the Department of Licensing to provide both the WA State Written and Skills test. In order to take a test with us, the applicant must either visit a DOL office to provide the necessary documents and get a WA ID number or pre-apply online. if you have newly moved to this state and have never been issued WA ID or driver’s license before, you must pre-apply first. Bring that number when you come to take your test. You have to have that number in order for us to put your score into the DOL database.
