West Virginia Drivers License Practice Test Description

You can give yourself an edge when it is time to take your West Virginia drivers license test by finding the best tools and study aids. One of the most useful tools is our free DMV practice test.

Getting Ready to Take Your Driver's License Test

There are two parts of the West Virginia drivers license exam. The first is a written exam, and the second is a behind-the-wheel test. Both parts of the exam are created to ensure you have a thorough understanding of the laws and safety issues when driving on public roads. These tests help keep everyone safe.

Being prepared and studying will help you get through the testing procedure with ease. Before going to the DMV, make sure you have taken the time you need to completely understand all the information in the official state handbooks and manuals. Everything on the test, from how to use proper hand signals to what to do in case of an emergency, is covered in the state handbook.

You can get additional help studying with our WV DMV practice test. Our practice tests are free and cover areas that the written portion of the driver's test covers. Each test has 25 multiple-choice questions designed to assess your knowledge of different traffic laws and road signs. By choosing the subject area you want to quiz yourself on, you can prepare more efficiently. On our site, we also offer additional resources such as cheat sheets and car insurance information to help you.

Once you feel comfortable with the material that could be on your official test, make sure you have an ID, proof of insurance and the fee for your license when you head off to the DMV. You will also be asked to take a vision test. It is a good idea to set aside plenty of time so that you do not feel rushed when taking any portion of the test. Wear comfortable clothing for the weather, and understand that there may be lines and waiting times for each section of the test.
