This # is the number issued to you by the state of WA that follows you through your licensing process; it becomes your permit # and then your driver’s license #. It is 12 digits long. This number will be in one of the following formats:
1) Starting with the first 5 (five) letters of your last name, ex: LASTNFN123AB
2) Starting with the letters WDL, ex: WDLABCD123YZ.
Some customers already have a WA State ID card (usually obtained for use as ID when traveling out of the country.) If so, the PIC # from that card is the number that we need. (It will also be one of the two formats above)
If you do not have an ID card with this number, you will need to “Pre-Apply” on the state of WA Dept of Licensing website. (There is a yellow button on top of the homepage of our website that says “Click HERE to Pre-Apply for a WDL#”). Here is a link as well: https://secure.dol.wa.gov/home/serviceType.aspx# This process takes about 10 minutes.
We will need this number in order for you to qualify to take your Written Knowledge Test and/or Driving (Skills) Test.
