Application for WV State Bar Membership ID Card Now Available Online

5/23/2017

​CHARLESTON, W.Va. – DMV Commissioner Pat Reed is pleased to announce that another service is now available online for the convenience of West Virginia citizens.  Attorneys can complete and pay for their West Virginia State Bar Membership Photo ID Card application online at www.wvbar.org.  Attorneys who reside in West Virginia, and have a valid photo on file with the West Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, may choose to have their membership ID card mailed to them directly or may pick it up in person at any West Virginia DMV office. The receipt from the online transaction must be presented if picking it up at a DMV office.  According to Commissioner Reed, “DMV’s focus has been, and will continue to be, excellent customer service, and adding this transaction to our self-service portal provides yet another service to our customers in a more convenient manner.”

Anita Casey, Executive Director, West Virginia State Bar, also added, “Allowing attorneys to complete the application for their membership ID card and pay online dramatically reduces the amount of time needed to process a request.  In many cases, attorneys are required to have their photo ID card when visiting a jail. Having a way to quickly request and receive their membership photo ID card is invaluable.”

If you are an attorney in need of a membership ID card, you may submit your application online at www.wvbar.org or visit the Drivers section on the West Virginia DMV’s Online Services Portal located at www.go.wv.gov/selfservice.

The new online service was developed by the West Virginia State Bar in partnership with WV.gov.
