South Carolina - Drivers Licence?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My soon to be husband is from South Carolina and in the Marine Corps. I understand the US and Canada have an agreement about drivers licence and my license is valid. SC law states that if you become a resident you need to have a state drivers license with SC. However, it says Military Personnel and their dependents are exempt as long as they have a drivers license to begin with.

However, I'm assuming I'd still have to get one because mine is canadian... is that right?

"Resident" that DMV is referring to is a person who has lived in the State at least 6 months or 1 year, by the state law, to be eligible to apply the state Driver's residence. Military Personnel and their families are exempt for that living 1 year requirement. Once you move to different state, you are considered the resident of state, as military member and families.

Therefore, you are eligible to apply for SC drivers license even though you just moved.
