A regular passenger vehicle beginner's permit allows you to practice driving a vehicle while you are accompanied by an experienced licensed driver.
To get a Class D Beginner's Permit:
You must be at least 15 years old. You must bring your birth certificate, social security card, proof of residency and insurance information. If you are under 18 years of age, you must bring your parent or legal guardian with you to sign your application. You must pass the vision and knowledge tests.
Driving Restrictions:
You may drive from 6 a.m. to midnight if a licensed driver who is at least 21 years old and has at least one year of driving experience accompanies you in the front seat. From midnight to 6 a.m., you may drive if a licensed parent or guardian accompanies you in the front seat. You must have your beginner's permit for 180 days before you can apply for a driver's license. If you are under 18 years of age, you must practice driving with your licensed parent or legal guardian for at least 40 hours, including 10 hours during darkness, before you can apply for your driver's license.

Conditional License for 15-Year-Old Drivers

If you are 15 years old and have held a beginner's permit for at least 180 days, you are eligible for a conditional license.

To get a Conditional License:

Bring your parent or legal guardian with you to sign your application. Bring your beginner's permit. You must pass the vision and road skills tests. The road skills test is administered by Carolina Driving School Inc.

  1. Completed a driver's training course

  2. Must be a full-time student

  3. Practiced driving with your licensed parent or guardian for 40 hours, including 10 hours of driving practice at night.

Driving Restrictions:

You may drive alone during daylight hours from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. (or 8 p.m. during daylight savings time). From 6 p.m. (or 8 p.m. during daylight savings time) until midnight, you may drive if a licensed driver who is at least 21 years of age accompanies you. Between midnight and 6 a.m., you may drive if your licensed parent or legal guardian accompanies you. You cannot transport more than two passengers under the age of 21 unless you are accompanied by a licensed adult who is at least 21 years old.

The only exception is if you are transporting family members or students to and from school. You may obtain full driving privileges when you are 16 if you have had your license for one year and have no traffic offenses or been involved in any at-fault accidents. If you are under the age of 17 and accrue six or more points on your record before you have held your license for one year, your license will be suspended for six months.

Beginner's Permit
Application Requirements:
You must be at least 15 years of age or older to apply. You must provide a birth certificate, social security card or its equivalent, proof of residency, and must pass the vision and knowledge tests. If you are under 18 years of age, you must have a parent or legal guardian sign your application.
Transferring from Another State:
If you have a valid out-of-state beginner's permit, you may obtain a beginner's permit in this state. The time you held your out-of-state permit also counts toward the 180-day requirement. If your permit has expired, you must take the vision and knowledge tests to get an SC beginner's permit.
Time Requirements:
Regardless of your age, if you have had a license or do not have proof of past driving experience, you must hold your beginner's permit for 180 days before being eligible for a driver's license.
