In West Virginia, electric personal assistive mobility devices (EPAMDs), including hoverboards, must have front, rear, and side reflectors, a braking system, and a white light if operated during nighttime.

When using a sidewalk, roadway, or bicycle path, EPAMD operators have the same rights and responsibilities as pedestrians and must exercise caution to avoid collisions. Except for these specific regulations, EPAMDs are not subject to the motor vehicle code.

Violators of the equipment and operating standards may receive a warning for the first offense, and subsequent offenses may result in a fine ranging from $10 to $100.
