Where to Take Tests

You must take a vision, knowledge, and road test when you apply for an original driver's license or upgrade to a different class. When upgrading to any type of license, you will be required to pass a vision, knowledge, and road test, except for a moped license. The SCDMV does not require a skills test for a moped license.

You may take vision and knowledge tests at any SCDMV branch.

Driver Training and Testing Programs

There are One Stop Driver Training and Testing Programs where SCDMV authorized trainers/testers give the knowledge and/or road tests if you're applying for a first-time regular (Class D) beginner's permit, driver's license, or motorcycle (Class M) license
