A clean driving record in West Virginia is one without any accidents, points or moving violations. Claims aren’t usually included in the definition of a clean driving record, but a record that’s also free of any recent claims does look cleaner. You can check your West Virginia driving record by going to the West Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles website and requesting a copy of your driving record.
