In addition to providing information concerning local office hours, the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles also offers residents the ability to renew their automobile registrations, driver's licenses and ID cards online. Other online services include access to driver's records and points accrued and the ability to exchange license plates for specialty versions. Drivers who need their licenses reinstated may pay fees online and check to see if they qualify for payment plans.
Those who need certified driving records for employment or titles and registration information may access all those records online via the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles website. Drivers may also replace damaged, stolen, or lost plates and licenses, change their addresses and provide the state with emergency contact information. Those who wish to use these services must register for membership.
Those who need to arrange a skills test with the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles may do so on the official website. These appointments are available for drivers seeking commercial class A, B or C endorsements, as well as non-commercial class E and F large vehicle licenses. The department offers CDL beginner's permits, and those who get these permits must wait at least 14 days before taking a skills test as of 2015.
In addition to driver services, the online portal for this department also provides information needed for future drivers to prepare for testing. The website lists the necessary fees for all services offered at brick-and-mortar locations, lists holiday closings and open job positions, and offers information on contacting the fraud hotline.
