What Is a Provisional License and do I need one?

A Provisional License is a temporary license issued at the time of application, valid for up to 60 days, for applicants who have completed the Responsible Beverage Server course and/or hold a license in another Wisconsin municipality (and are able to provide proof of same) and require a license immediately. There is a fee of $15 for a Provisional License, which must be paid in addition to the regular Bartender License fee.

In most cases a Provisional License is not necessary, as a new employee will be working under the direct supervision of a licensed bartender during their first weeks of employment.
