“Our DMV provides many services critical to our everyday lives,” said Senator Capito. “It’s important to provide the support they need to be as effective as possible, especially while the COVID-19 pandemic limits operations. It’s also just as important that West Virginians have access to innovative resources through the DMV while streamlining services preparing our young drivers for safe travel. I am pleased to see West Virginia receive funding from such a competitive program and look forward to the benefits it will create for our state and residents.”
