Take Drivers Education in West Virginia

Drivers education may be the most important class you take as a teen. Under the guidance of a certified instructor you receive professional training on how to become a lifelong safe driver. Among the many topics the course covers include:

  • Road sign identification
  • West Virginia traffic laws
  • Maintaining proper speeds
  • Parking
  • Night driving
  • The dangers of driving while impaired
  • Turning at intersections
  • Backing
  • Safe driving techniques and much more

Under West Virginia's Graduated Driver's License (GDL) program, drivers education is not required. However, the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) strongly recommends enrolling in a driving class. You can choose from a number of courses offered throughout the state. Or if time is an issue, online courses can be completed from the convenience of home at your own pace. And as an added enrollment incentive, the hours spent behind the wheel in a drivers ed class may be applied towards your requirement for supervised driving.
