COLUMBIA, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) -- Beginning May 26, the South carolina Department of Motor Vehicles will resume offering skills tests for non-commercial vehicle drivers who want to obtain standard driver’s licenses.

Skills tests will be offered by appointment only, Monday through Friday, at 23 branch offices across the state as well as one day per week at an additional 10 locations.

The agency suspended Class D skills tests in mid-March in response to COVID-19 social-distancing requirements.

Examiners will also temporarily evaluate testers using a modified version of the skills test that evaluates critical driver competencies while adhering to social-distancing recommendations.

In addition, the agency continues to offer motorcycle and commercial driver’s license skills testing by appointment at select locations.

However, skills tests for recreational vehicle (RV) licenses or licenses for RVs with cars towed behind them (Class E and F licenses) remain suspended.

Customers can schedule skills test appointments at SCDMVonline.com. Customers who do not have an appointment to take a skills test will be turned away.
