1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Application assistance services can simplify the process for many DMV related services for a fee, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more. Other benefits include an ongoing monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering important updates that affect drivers, important safety tips, trends, legislative updates and ways to save money on vehicle-related services.

2: By mail

Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the DMV in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local DMV.

3: Via a DMV office

If your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at your local DMV office. Varying DMV offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the DMV closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your DMV allows you to make a personal appointment.

Changing Your Address

Have you moved recently within South Carolina? If so, the clock is ticking to change your address on official documents. The state sends important information regarding your driving privileges to the address displayed on the license. These letters are not forwarded, so it is imperative that the information be up to date. After moving, you have 10 days to change your address on department records. When you change your name or address with the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), all your vehicle and driver records will be updated. You can either use the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Public Services website, apply by mail or visit your local DMV office. You must complete Form 4057.
