Effective August 1, 2017, the fee for an electronic driving record (obtained using WV.Gov, an NIC Affiliate) will increase from $11.50 to $12.50.
Previously the electronic driving record had increased from $9.00 to $11.50 effective July 1st. Also effective July 1st, West Virginia increased the fee for a manually obtained driving record from $6.00 to $7.50 if the name and DL number are presented. If the DL is not presented, the fee is one dollar higher at $8.50. There is no longer a $1.00 fee added for certification. The fee for a driver to obtain his or her own record online increased from $9.00 to $13.50.
Many thanks to Ms. Kim Bishop at HireRight for clarifying the status of the electronic fees, as the folks at WV.gov refused to respond to any of our fee questions.
