West Virginia Commercial Driver's Instruction Permit

A West Virginia commercial driver's instruction permit (CDL instruction permit) may be issued to an applicant who holds a valid West Virginia operator's or class D license who has passed the vision and/or physical standards, and knowledge tests required for issuance of a West Virginia CDL.

The West Virginia CDL instruction permit may not be issued for a period to exceed 180 days. Only 1 renewal on re-issuance may be granted within a 2 year period from issue date. In the event the applicant has been issued 2 West Virginia CDL instruction permits, before the applicant may obtain an additional West Virginia CDL instruction permit he/she must reapply and re-test on all parts of the knowledge exam.

The holder of a West Virginia CDL instruction permit may drive a commercial motor vehicle on the highway only when accompanied by the holder of a commercial driver's license valid for the type of vehicle who occupies a seat beside the individual for the purpose of giving instruction or testing. The permit must be valid for the type of vehicle being driven also.

A West Virginia CDL instruction permit may only be issued to an applicant who is at least 18 years of age and has held an operator or junior operator license for at least 2 years.

Upon completion of all tests, the person will receive a West Virginia CDL instruction permit. When operating a commercial vehicle you must have your West Virginia CDL instruction permit and regular operator's license.

Applicants must hold a West Virginia CDL instruction permit for a minimum of 14 days before they are eligible to take the road skills test. Applicants whom are ready to take the road skills test must contact a Third-Party Examiner to schedule an appointment.

West Virginia CDL Age & Fitness Requirements

You must be at least 18 years of age and have at least 2 years driving experience to qualify for a West Virginia CDL or West Virginia CDL instruction permit. Federal Motor Carrier Rules requires that drivers subject to those rules meet specific physical qualification standards and carry evidence of such qualification in the form of a medical certificate.

All drivers who operate a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) in NON-EXCEPTED INTERSTATE (NI) commerce are subject to having a DOT physical completed by a certified medical examiner listed on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's National Registry web site, located at: https://nationalregistry.fmcsa.dot.gov.

School bus drivers or applicants who work for a city, state, or federal government agency, in which a CDL is required for their employment, are considered operating in EXCEPTED INTRASTATE or EXCEPTED INTERSTATE and are exempt from meeting the FMCSA requirements. School bus drivers will be required to present their current School Bus Certification card. Applicants who work for a city, county, state, or federal government agency must provide written verification, on agency letterhead, verifying employment with their city, state, or federal government agency.

If you cannot be medically certified, you may be eligible for a medical waiver.

If you wish to be able to operate a commercial motor vehicle interstate (all 50 states) you must apply and be granted a waiver from the Federal Highway Administration. Contact (304) 347-5935 for further information.

If you wish to operate a commercial motor vehicle in WV only, please call (304) 926-3801 for information on obtaining a medical waiver.
