Get the West Virginia Driver’s Licensing Handbook
Pick up at hard copy of the handbook at any local DMV office or download a PDF version online. The handbook has a clear focus on road safety and mentions many “dos and don’ts”. Some of them will show up on your test.
When you read the handbook, move on to the practice tests. Try to fully understand questions and answers. Don’t just memorize them. The test asks questions in many different ways. Only one option is correct, but the options to a question aren’t always the same.

Who Must Pass the West Virginia Knowledge Exam?
If you’ve never held a driver’s license before, you must pass the knowledge examination before DMV will give a license.
When you move to West Virginia and have an out-of-state license that has expired, DMV will treat you as a first-time applicant. You must take all examination tests, vision, written, and road skills examination before DMV issues a West Virginia license.
If your out-of-state license is still valid, you must pass a vision test, complete a brief alcohol awareness course, and surrender your out-of-state license. DMV will waive the written knowledge test.
If another state has suspended or revoked your license, you will not get a license in West Virginia until you receive a clearance.
Anyone who lets his or her West Virginia license expire more than six months must also pass all applicable examination tests.
An expired regular Instruction Permit (ages 18 and over) also requires a re-examination.
If you lose you driving privilege because of a license revocation, you must re-apply for a new license after the revocation period and take all examination tests.
You must also take the written knowledge examination if the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles has good cause to believe you are incompetent or otherwise not qualified to be licensed.
