DMV Services in South Carolina

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.

Schedule a Skills Test

People are normally served at the DMV in order of arrival. However, it accepts appointments for skills tests and all vehicle classes. Schedule tests at least 30 minutes apart if the same vehicle is used for more than one test. This will give the test-taker enough time to finish it before the next person starts.
