Start Your FREE 2018 WV DMV Practice Test Now

You aren’t going to feel very at home on the country roads of West Virginia without a license to operate a motor vehicle. Learners can apply as early as 15, and while there’s a manual put out by the DMV, our practice tests are more comprehensive. We also have visual representations of road situations making it easier to really see what the questions are asking. It’s the ideal resource for someone who wants to pass on the first try (around 50% of people fail the first go around… don’t let that be you!). In addition, the site contains all the information you might need if you want to obtain a motorcycle or commercial driver’s license or a learner’s permit, as well as DMV practice tests for these.
