A regular license is a Class D beginner's permit or driver's license. You may hear a road test referred to as a skills test.

Driver's License Road Test

You may take a regular (Class D) driver's license road test in the rain as long as you can see using an intermittent or low windshield wiper speed. If you are applying for a regular license, you may take the road test at any SCDMV branch. 

Please note that all branches accept walk-in customers for these types of license skills tests from 8:30a.m. – 1:30 p.m. everyday besides Wednesday. On Wednesdays, branch offices do not open until 9:30 a.m. and accept walk-in customers until 1:30 p.m.

You must make an appointment to take regular skills tests from 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. You will not be able to take knowledge tests after 4 p.m.
