Car dealers in West Virginia have only a limited amount of time left before their June 30 license renewal deadline. Dealers need to submit their renewal applications by June 1 at the West Virginia Department of Transportation, Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

To renew their West Virginia dealer license, auto dealers must fill in and submit their renewal application by June 1 to the DMV.
To renew their licenses, dealers also need to pay a renewal fee. Here is a list of the types of licenses that expire on June 30 and that need to be renewed before that:

Then there is the bond renewal, without which you cannot renew your license.
