|Beginning Monday, April 6, 2020, the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (SCDMV) will resume administering motorcycle skills testing at branch offices where the service was previously offered. Motorcycle skills test will be by appointment only. Non-commercial passenger vehicle road tests remain suspended indefinitely.
Also beginning Monday, April 6, 2020, the SCDMV will resume administering a limited number of road tests for commercial motor vehicle drivers looking to obtain a commercial driver’s license (CDL). The DMV will offer CDL road tests at specific locations by appointment only, using volunteer examiners. SCDMV will offer CDL road test appointments as long as volunteer examiners are able to support. Customers in urgent need of a CDL road test should schedule a CDL appointment on the SCDMV website.
“We understand the importance of commercial trucking to our state and our nation, and we are doing what we can to keep truckers on the road to deliver vital supplies,” said SCDMV Executive Director Kevin Shwedo. “Our ability to license commercial motor vehicle drivers impacts everything we do, from getting gasoline delivered to putting products on shelves in groceries stores.”
