From determining your car insurance rates to affecting your job search, your driving record can impact more than just your driving license. It is therefore important for you to know what exactly is in your driving record.  A West Virginia driving record contains details about your driver’s license issuance and status, any violations (including DUI), all adjudications withheld, accidents, all license suspensions, revocations, cancellations and disqualifications of your driver’s license. The West Virginia Department of Transportation is responsible for keeping and issuing of driving records.

You can order for a copy of your West Virginia driving record by mail, in person, by e-mail or fax. To order for your driving record in person you need to visit any West Virginia DMV office. You will be required to provide a completed Driving Record Request (Form DMV-101-PS1), proof of identification (your driver’s license or a federal or state-issued ID) and payment for the applicable fee. To order by mail, you need a completed Driving Record Request (Form DMV-101-PS1), a copy of your state-issued photo ID or driver’s license, driver’s license number and the required fee. Mail all of the above to:

Driving Records Section
PO Box 17020
Charleston, WV 25317

You can also fax or e-mail your request to the following:

  • E-mail: DMVdriverRec@wv.gov.
  • Fax: (304) 926-3899.

The state does not provide free driving records; you will be required to pay a fee of $5 and an additional of $1 if you order by mail. You can only order another driver’s driving record if you have their written consent. For more information visit the West Virginia Department of Transportation.
