DMV Sex Offender Registry Law

Note that Section 23-3-460 of the SC Code of Laws states that a person who has been convicted anywhere of an offense listed in 23-3-430 must register with the county sheriff within 10 days of establishing residency in South Carolina. A copy of the Sex Offender Registry Law is available upon request.

    • If your beginner's permit has expired, you must take the vision and knowledge tests to obtain a South Carolina beginner's permit.

    • If your beginner's permit is valid and you have had your out-of-state beginner's permit for at least 180 days, you may take the vision and skills test top apply for your SC driver's license. Application can be made on the 181st day or anytime thereafter. The time that you held the out-of-state beginner's permit will count toward the 180 day period.

    • If you fail the skills test on your first attempt, you must wait two weeks to re-test regardless of your age. If you are issued a SC beginner's permit, the time that you held an out-of-state beginner's permit count toward the 180-day period.
