West Virginia Permit Practice Test FAQs:

Does this practice test include the same questions as the West Virginia knowledge exam?

The questions on this West Virginia practice test come from the exact same place the WV DMV pulls its questions from for your permit exam—the latest West Virginia driver’s handbook. The DMV often switches up its questions and phrasing each year, which is why our practice test covers every topic they could potentially quiz you on.

How do I study for my WV permit test?

The best way to study for your West Virginia permit exam is to frequently and thoroughly review the West Virginia driver’s manual. Then, it’s critical to quiz yourself with a WV-specific practice test to check your learning progress and memory.

How do I earn my West Virginia driver’s license?

To earn your WV driver’s license, you must be at least 16 years old. All drivers, regardless of age, must also first acquire a learner’s permit and hold it for a specific period of time—for adults 18 and older, at least 30 days, and for teens under 18 years old, at least 6 months. Teens must also accumulate 50 hours of supervised driving practice. Then you can take your road test and earn your West Virginia license—for adults 18 and older, this will be an unrestricted driver’s license, while teens under 18 will receive an intermediate driver’s license valid until their 18th birthday.
