West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles (USA)

The West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles will no longer dictate how transgender residents can dress for driver’s license photos. The state formally changed its policy July 1 after three transgender women threatened to sue, saying they were harassed or forced to remove makeup while trying to update their driver’s license information last year. The policy shift marks the second time in recent months that a state has relaxed rules requiring transgender men and women to alter their usual appearance for identification photos.
