SR22 insurance is a liability insurance that many states require of DUI / DWI offenders. West Virginia is not one of these states.
There is no SR22 insurance requirement in West Virginia.
However, if you get a DUI in West Virginia and you live in or later move to another state, you may be required to carry SR22 insurance in that state. For state-specific laws, check with the local DMV or comparable agency.
Some DUI offenders may choose to participate in West Virginia's Ignition Interlock Program as a way of driving (with an interlock restriction) before their full suspension period is over.
However, some DUI offenders will be required to install an ignition interlock device as part of their sentencing. For example, if your BAC was .15 or higher, or if you've had two or more alcohol-related offenses within 10 years, then you will need to participate in the program.
