Visit the Department of Motor Vehicles if you need a license, title, tag, or registration in South Carolina. It is simple to find an office close to your home because there are locations all over the state. The offices operate at different hours on different days of the week. While some are open five days a week, others are also closed on certain days. The offices also provide different services. Before your visit, confirm that the office offers the services you need or you will have to go to another location.
