Before class begins:

  1. If you already have a Washington State ID, skip to #3!

  2. If you do not have a Washington State ID, pre-apply for your
    first Washington license by going to the Washington State
    Department of Licensing website
    and click on the “Get a driver license” link. Follow the
    prompts for “Steps to getting your first license” and then
    “Instruction permits” to “pre-apply online”.
