ALERT 8/23/2022 - ATV Title Decals
If you received an ATV decal in the mail, but you no longer own the vehicle in question, please disregard the decal and letter. It is not necessary to inform the DMV that you are no longer in possession of the vehicle, although if you would like to, you can submit a Sold Vehicle Notice (DMV-1-S) or return the decal along with a note that the vehicle has been sold and we will update our systems accordingly.
If you do still own the vehicle, please follow the instructions on the handout included in your envelope.
ALERT 1/1/2022 - DHHR Warns of Spam Messages Regarding Vaccine Status
The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) has received reports of individuals receiving spam text messages asking them to validate their driver’s license through the state’s Division of Motor Vehicles in partnership with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
No such message has been generated by DHHR and should be immediately deleted. Do not click on the link provided in the text message.
The spam text message reads: “West Virginia Covid-19 Vaccine Driver License Waiver Validation. Validate your details below” (with a clickable link). It then states, “Department of Health l State of West Virginia. Text “STOP” to stop msg.”
An additional spam message reads: “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in partnership with the West Virginia State DMV requires an immediate validation of your Covid-19 status. This is a waiver validation update and a compulsory one-time validation for all West Virginia residents.”
DHHR will never ask for personal information via text message.
Attention DMV Customers: Multiple scams are currently circulating via text message that say DMV owes you money or DMV has a "rebate" waiting for you if you just click on a link. Please know that WV DMV will NEVER send you a text message and ask you to "click on a link". Again, this is a scam. Please delete/disregard.
