    SC Motorcycle Manual

    The South Carolina Motorcycle Manual is offered as a chapter in the Driver License Manual.

    You can access an English copy of Chapter 5: Motorcycles online using the free Adobe Reader, or you can pick up an English or Spanish copy at your local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

    This chapter is a wonderful resource for those seeking to obtain their motorcycle license. The chapter discusses:

    • Obtaining your license/permit
    • Motorcycle maneuvers
    • Protective clothing
    • Motorcycle safety
    • How to avoid trouble
    • Group riding
    • Passengers and cargo
    • Hazards and dangerous surfaces
    • Cycling laws

    The manual also offers a detailed section on mopeds, covering information such as the definition of a moped, the requirements to obtain a moped license and operate a moped, special regulations, and safety.


    South Carolina states that all motorcycle drivers and passengers under the age of 21 years old must wear an approved motorcycle helmet and some type of eye protection.

    The Motorcycle Safety Foundation offers a free brochure explaining how helmets work and guidelines for choosing your own.
