WVC 18 - 6 - 9 §18-6-9. Commercial driver education schools -- Course of instruction; issuance and renewal of license; fee; application for license; inspections and revocation of license; lists of schools offering approved courses.
The state board shall prescribe a course of instruction for commercial driver education schools in West Virginia. The requirements and quality of the course of instruction prescribed for commercial driver education schools shall be at least equal to the minimum standards that are prescribed for secondary schools. The state superintendent shall issue licenses to commercial driver education schools which offer courses of instruction in driver education which comply with the course of study approved by the state board.

A fee of fifty dollars shall be charged by the state superintendent for the issuance of any such license, which may be renewed annually, for a fee of fifty dollars, so long as the licensee complies with the requirements of this article. Sums so received shall be deposited into the state treasury and credited to an account of the department of education for the administration of the provisions of this article.

An application for a license to operate a licensed commercial driver education school shall be made upon an official form prescribed by the state superintendent, and licenses shall be granted only when the state superintendent is satisfied that the school offers a course of driver education which complies with the requirements approved by the state board.

The state superintendent shall periodically cause an inspection to be made of all licensed schools. He shall revoke and require the surrender of the license of any school that fails to achieve and maintain the minimum course standards prescribed therefor or that he finds is not conducting a driver education course that is in conformity with the requirements approved by the state board.

The state superintendent shall maintain, file and make available at his office and at other places he selects lists of all public and nonpublic schools offering approved courses of driver education and all commercial schools holding licenses and those whose licenses have been revoked. The state superintendent shall keep the list current and shall furnish a copy of the list to the commissioner of motor vehicles and to the commissioner of insurance.
