SC DMV launches suspension eligibility week


COLUMBIA, SC (WBTW) – A statewide program began on Monday for drivers who lost their driving privileges due to certain suspensions.

The SCDMV launched a program that could reduce or clear remaining suspension time for the following types:

  • Excessive points for someone under the age of 18
  • Operating an unlicensed taxi
  • Operating an uninsured vehicle that they did not own
  • Operating or allowing someone else to operate an uninsured vehicle
  • Driving under suspension, excluding alcohol or drug related convictions

As of 5 p.m. on Friday, March 22, drivers will not have this opportunity again until 2020.

Drivers who may qualify for the program must complete the Driver Suspension Eligibility Application (SCDMV Form DL-601) and visit an SCDMV branch.

Drivers must pay all fees. If required, suspended drivers must get a Certificate of Insurance (SR-22) filed by their insurance company.
