    SC Motorcycle Registration

    Registering your motorcycle in South Carolina is the same as registering a passenger car, but the registration fees are only $10 plus the applicable taxes.

    For new motorcycle purchases, you will need to provide the following documentation and fees:

    • Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin, or original title.
    • Lien information. If you've taken a loan to buy the bike, the DMV will need to know the date of the loan and the name and address of the lienholder.
    • Application Form 400.
    • Odometer reading.
    • Receipt for paid property tax. SC bills you for property tax on all vehicles, and you must pay this tax before you can register your bike.
    • Casual Sales Tax is also collected on all vehicles. This tax is 5% of the purchase price (maximum of $300).

    When you have gathered all the above information, you can take it to your local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or mail it to:

    • SC Department of Motor Vehicles
    • P.O. Box 1498
    • Blythewood, South Carolina 29016

    Registration Renewal

    South Carolina requires your registration to be renewed every two years, in the month you first registered your bike. The fee for renewal is $10.
