At any DMV regional office, a WV resident can apply for a WV instruction permit, driver's license, or identification card. Unless you are expressly exempt, if you live in West Virginia and want to drive a motor vehicle on public roads, you must obtain a West Virginia driver's license or learner's permit. The West Virginia DMV written test comprises 25 questions based on the West Virginia Driver's Manual's contents, including basic knowledge, traffic rules, regulations, road signs, and markings. To pass the test, you must accurately answer 19 of the 25 questions. The WV DMV test has a time limit, and any questions not answered within that time will be considered incorrect. Practice with our WV DMV practice test to get ready for the official West Virginia written test.
