Driver Suspension Amnesty Week

This week, the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles will conduct it’s Driver Suspension Eligibility week. March 10 through 14, DMV offices across the upstate will offer assistance to those South Carolinians who have lost their driving privileges. During Driver Suspension eligibility Week, residents may get assistance to reduce or clear the remaining time of suspension.   The program will assist drivers under 18 who have been suspended due to excess points, those suspended for operating an unlicensed taxi or vehicle, those suspended for operating an uninsured vehicle they do not own, those suspended for operating or allowing the operation of an uninsured vehicle, and driver suspended for driving under suspension. The program excludes drivers whose licenses have been suspended due to alcohol or drug related charges. Drivers must meet one of the conditions of suspension, and drivers with more than one suspension will have to have their suspension period recalculated by the DMV. To apply, drivers must complete Form DL-601 and visit the DMV office during the period March 10 through 14.
