If you are younger than 18 years old, you must have completed 50 hours of driving time recorded on a 50-Hour Certification Log for Driver’s License Applicants Under Age 18 (Form DMV-10-GDL) before you can get your license.
You must also have your learner's permit for a total of 6 months without an infraction and be at least 16 years old. For example, if you obtain your learner's permit one week after you turn 15, you still have to wait until you turn 16 to get your driver's license.
If you are 18 years old or older, you must have a valid learner's permit for 30 days before applying for your driver's license.
Driver education courses are offered in most high schools, and you can find listings for commercial agencies that offer the courses in the Yellow Pages.
There are several ways to help educate and train yourself both before and after you obtain your driver's license. Once you have your learner's permit you're allowed to practice driving if you are accompanied by another licensed driver who is 21 or older.
Take advantage of the opportunity to practice driving with someone you know and trust―you'll be less likely to be nervous.
Other good ideas include downloading the West Virginia Driver Licensing Handbook or picking up a copy at your local Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) office, and taking the practice driver license exams.
Remember, obtaining your driver's license doesn't make you an expert driver―accidents can happen to anyone at anytime. Check out our Teen Drivers section for helpful tips that apply to all drivers.Driving Schools
