The Instruction Permit

Are you ready to get your West Virginia Instruction Permit?

Before you can get your level 1 instruction permit, you must be at least 15 years old. Under the graduated driver’s license program you must be able to present a valid school driver eligibility certificate from your county school board. You must also have a written permission from your parent or legal guardian.

In West Virginia, you must obtain an instruction permit even if you are 18 or over. This applies if you have never had a driver’s license (Level 2 or comparable) before. You must then hold this permit for at least 90 days.

To get your instruction permit, regardless of age, you must be familiar with driving laws and safe driving practices. Passing a written knowledge test is mandatory for all first-time applicants.

How To Prepare for the Written Knowledge Test

The best way to prepare is to practice the West Virginia DMV written test questions online with We have prepared more than 600 questions to cover all the important areas.

You should start as early as possible so you have plenty of time to practice.

Start by read the Licensing Handbook, available at the DMV website. All questions on your written knowledge test are based on the information in the handbook. Then, take a few practice tests each day.

Taking the final knowledge test often create stress and anxiety. You can minimize that stress and anxiety if you use some good study habits. Make a timetable and set aside an hour or so each day. Aim for at least 90% on our practice tests. This will give you a good knowledge buffer.
