South Carolina residents who are disabled may apply for a disabled license plate and two portable, plastic placards to hang on the rearview mirrors of their vehicles.
On the application, your doctor must certify that your condition causes walking impairment due to least one of the following reasons:
- You use a wheelchair
- You use braces
- You use a walker
- You use crutches
- You use a portable respirator
- You have any other type of condition that causes mobility impairment
Your doctor must also record the length of time you will be disabled.
If you are not disabled, but are an immediate family member of a disabled person or use your vehicle to transport disabled people, you may also apply for a disabled license plate and placards.
Simply complete the application and include a written statement explaining exactly why the plate and placards are needed.
A disabled license plate is $20.00 and valid for 2 years.
You may also ask for portable placards to use in any vehicle for $1 each.
You can apply for these tags by mail. Send the completed application, the tag and/or placard fee, and a copy of your current insurance card, to the S.C. Department of Motor Vehicles address on the form.

South Carolina has a reciprocal agreement with all other states. If you're a traveling SC resident, other states will honor your valid state-issued handicapped plates and placards. If you're a visitor, SC will recognize your own state's plates and placards.Other Topics in This Section
