CHARLESTON, WV – The West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles announced today that the Elkins and Logan Regional Offices joined 10 other offices now taking appointments. Appointments may be made for services that must be accomplished in-person, including driver’s license knowledge and skills testing, driver’s license and identification card changes, out-of-state transfers, original ID card issuance, and salesperson testing. The following locations are now available for appointments:
Kanawha City / Charleston
Charles Town / Kearneysville
Please note: driver’s skills tests will be done at all locations listed above except Winfield. According to DMV Commissioner Everett Frazier, “Customers may visit our website, dmv.wv.gov, to make an appointment. We also have a dedicated phone number, 304-558-3938, for customers to use who do not have internet access.”
“We want to thank the great citizens of West Virginia for their patience and understanding. Their safety, as well as the safety of our employees is paramount to us, and we will continue to add the remaining offices for appointments over the coming weeks, as more safety features are installed,” he said. Those safety upgrades include plexiglass, masks and cleaning supplies for employees to use, and a new way to do driver skills testing.
New courses have been developed that will allow the driver examiner to observe the driving from outside the car while the applicant completes the test with a licensed parent or other licensed driver over the age of 21 accompanying the driver in the vehicle.
Commissioner Frazier added, “We are excited to add two more regional offices into our appointment scheduling. We look forward to serving the citizens of West Virginia again in-person, but we also want to remind and encourage customers who can to use our online services and kiosks for those transactions that don’t have to be done in-person.”
