DMV Appointments in South Carolina

The South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is looking to save you some time, by allowing you to schedule certain appointments ahead of time. This guide will outline the types of appointments you can make, how to go about making them, and what you'll need to bring to your DMV visit.

You should also keep in mind that the state offers online driver and vehicle services which could ultimately save you a trip to the DMV.

Types of South Carolina DMV Appointments

You can schedule a road testing appointment for the following types of SC licenses:

  • Standard, Class D license.
  • Motorcycle license.
  • Class A, B, and C commercial driver's license (CDL).
  • Class E and F non-commercial, large vehicle license.

How to Make a SC DMV Appointment

You can use the convenient online scheduling system provided by the SC Department of Motor Vehicles to make any type of road testing appointment. You can also call your local, South Carolina DMV office branch to make a behind-the-wheel examination appointment for a standard driver's license only.

Not all SC DMV offices offer the same types of road testing and do not have the same hours of operation. Take a look at the Department of Motor Vehicles' website to make sure you'll be able to schedule an appointment when and where you need to.

If you need to cancel or change your appointment, you can log onto the aforementioned online scheduling system using your appointment receipt number and modify your appointment details.

On the day of your appointment you should arrive early and have all of the necessary materials for your specific type of visit. Avoid multiple trips to the DMV and take a look at our guides for an idea of what you'll need to bring for your visits regarding:
