I don't see any time restraints in the West Virginia code, but I could be wrong.
The code section dealing with licensing: WV Code 4

In West Virginia, after you take class and get certified, how long do you have to get permit?
I didn't need to take the class (native West Virginian) as I was a correctional officer and they accepted my firearm training in place of the CC class. Got my permit within 24 hrs but this was 20 years ago when CCs were issued by a judge. The first time that I had to sent in paperwork to renew I got my permit back in about 3 weeks.
