Commercial Drivers License Info South Carolina




After establishing residency in South Carolina, you must apply to transfer your CDL license within 30 days.

When you apply for a commercial driver’s license, SCDMV will run automatic checks against the Problem Driver Pointer System (PDPS) and the Commercial Driver License Information System (CDLIS) databases to check your prior driving history in other states. The checks are performed when a customer applies for an original credential, renews a credential, is reexamined or moves from a beginner permit to a license. They are designed to insure drivers have only one valid license at a time.

You will be required to surrender your out-of-state license before a South Carolina commercial driver’s license can be issued.
