SCDMV mobile offices hit the road in 2020

January 03, 2020

The SCDMV will embark on a statewide tour aimed at getting more South Carolinians their REAL ID driver's license or identification card in the new year.

"The agency is equipped with three mobile offices," said SCDMV Executive Director Kevin Shwedo. "Two of these offices can be setup anywhere, and the other is on wheels. We're going to visit every county over the next five months to make sure more South Carolinians have a convenient option to purchase a REAL ID."

Beginning Monday, January 6, 2020, SCDMV Self-contained Hazardous Area Response Kits (SHARKs) will be strategically placed for one day in each county over the next five months to serve as another convenient way to purchase a REAL ID. Mobile offices will be operational from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This is another avenue for South Carolinians to take advantage of if visiting a brick-and-mortar branch is not convenient.

The REAL IDs customers purchase will be mailed to them after completing the transaction at a mobile office. No customer will walk away with a REAL ID license or ID. Customers should receive their REAL ID via mail within ten business days of completing the transaction. If a customer is interested in completing other transactions, he or she should visit an SCDMV branch.

Find an SCDMV branch
To purchase a REAL ID, customers must bring with them all of the following:

  • Proof of Identity (Government-issued birth certificate or valid US Passport)
  • Proof of Social Security Number (Social security card, 1099, non-1099, W-2)
  • Two Proofs of Current, Physical SC Address
  • Proof of All Legal Name Changes
  • Applicable payment ($25; cash, check, or card accepted)

For a complete list of accepted documents, view the United States Citizens' Checklist (SCDMV Form MV-93).

Beginning October 1, 2020, you must have a REAL ID license or ID or another federally accepted identification to board a domestic, commercial flight, enter a secure federal building, or visit a military installation.

During the first week of the tour (Monday, January 6 - Friday, January 10), SCDMV mobile offices will be setup in the Grand Strand and Pee Dee. The mobile office will serve customers from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day.
