You must take your WV Driver's license photo at the DMV office. When you take your photo, you should make sure that you wear what you would wear normally. It's extremely important that your face is clearly shown and recognizable. Look straight at the camera and do not smile, as a resting face is easier to identify.
When you apply for your WV Learner's Permit, you will need to bring proof of your identity, your Social Security Number and two documents that prove your residency in West Virginia. If you are under 18, you will also need to submit a School Eligibility Form.
