When teens are first learning to drive, they are highly receptive to important messages about the dangers of unsafe driving and driving while intoxicated. That is why it is so important for parents to get involved at this initial stage to ensure proper and thorough education to help set ground rules and instill good driving habits, as their teen takes on the responsibility of operating a motor vehicle.
This online driver education course is not timed.
The final exam is online and may be taken as many times as necessary until the student has scored 85% or better.
After you complete the course, we will send you a certificate of completion; however, it will not satisfy your state’s permit or licensing requirements and is intended for your records only.

West Virginia Online Drivers Education / West Virginia Licensing Rules & Procedures
You’re to be congratulated for starting your application for a West Virginia Learner’s Permit or getting the ball rolling on your 1st West Virginia Driver’s License. West Virginia also features a Graduated Driver’s License Program aimed at teen drivers. Teens should keep a few things in mind as they make their application to obtain their 1st West Virginia license. To ensure that things go as smoothly as they can keep the following things in mind.
West Virginia Instruction Permit/West Virginia Learners Permit
At age 15, a teen can apply to get a West Virginia Instruction Permit. They have to meet some specific demands in order to make a valid application such as:
Once these things have been secured, you can trek down to the local West Virginia DMV along with a parent or legal guardian and submit the application. Then you will need to take the written test. If you pass it, then Congratulations to you! You now hold a West Virginia Instruction Permit that is good until your 18th birthday!
Always remember that you are required to have someone with you when you practice your driving, and it has to be a driving instructor, parent, legal guardian, or another licensed driver who is age 21 or older. You are restricted to driving only between 5AM and 10PM and with only 2 non-family passengers besides the assisting supervising adult. Any or all passengers MUST WEAR SEAT-BELTS. You should have your West Virginia Learners Permit on your person any time you are behind the wheel. Texting or talking on cell phones is strictly PROHIBITED.
After holding your permit for at least six months and meeting the necessary requirements, you are prepared to take the next step and apply for the West Virginia Intermediate Drivers License.
West Virginia Provisional License or Intermediate Driver’s License

Once you have satisfied these demands, you can make your way down to the local DMV office once again. Be sure not to forget to take all your required documents along, a $5 fee, your permit, and a parent or legal guardian. It’s time for that stressful old road test! If you pass that, then super congrats to you! You just earned yourself an Intermediate Driver’s License in the state of West Virginia! Before you pat yourself on the back too hard, remember that there are still a few restrictions to adhere to.
