West Virginia DMV and DNR Working Together to Help Seniors

February 9, 2015

SOUTH CHARLESTON, WV - Division of Natural Resources Director Bob Fala and Division of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Pat Reed recently announced the opportunity for seniors who have purchased the Class XS Senior Lifetime Hunting and Fishing License to obtain a Class XS designation on their West Virginia driver's license or identification card.

According to Commissioner Reed, "DMV is pleased to offer a new, convenient driver's license and ID card designation for our customers, in addition to other designation opportunities already available, including veteran, hearing impaired and organ donor."

Working together with other organizations to further enhance good customer service is important to both agencies. "We are pleased to partner with the DMV to make it easier for our Senior Lifetime License holders to show proof of a license while in the field," said Director Fala. "The Class XS License endorsement printed on the West Virginia driver's license means they only would be required to carry that one proof of identification with them."

The Senior Lifetime Hunting, Fishing and Trapping license can only be purchased through the DNR South Charleston Office at 324 4th Avenue. To obtain the Senior Lifetime Hunting, Fishing and Trapping designation, customers may visit their nearest DMV regional office and apply for the designation to be added to their driver's license or ID card. Customers will need to present the bill of sale for the license, or their permanent Class XS license card as proof of licensure, as well as all applicable documentation for a driver's license or ID card.

Documentation required includes one proof of physical residency for a Not For Federal driver's license or ID card and two proofs of physical residency for a For Federal card. No fees will be collected by the DMV for the designation if the applicant is already renewing their license or ID card. A $5 duplicate fee will be charged for the Not For Federal driver's license or ID card if the customer is wanting to just add the designation. A $15 fee will be collected for the For Federal driver's license or ID card.

Commissioner Reed encourages all applicants to call the DMV Call Center at 1-800-642-9066 or visit the DMV website at www.dmv.wv.gov with any questions before going to a regional office. "Our focus is customer service, and we want our customers to have a pleasant and efficient visit to the DMV. Our fully-staffed Call Center and website are both great information resources to ensure that all of the necessary documents are in place before going to the DMV."

For additional information about the senior lifetime hunting, trapping and fishing license, please call 304-558-2771 and ask for the licensing office.
