How To Obtain Your South Carolina Driving Record

Sometimes you want a copy of your driving record to check the status of your points or for employment. Checking your record for accuracy periodically is important. Or perhaps you want to check to see what type of insurance premiums you will qualify for or for another type of court appearance. You have a right to your own driving record and obtaining one through SC DMV is easy and relatively inexpensive. You can obtain a copy of your record by ordering it online or by mail.

Types of Driving Records

South Carolina has two types of driving records. Before ordering your driving record, consider what type you need. If you only want to know how many points are on your license, you want a driver record points summary, which is free. If, however, you want more complete information, such as your complete three-year or 10-year driving record, you’ll pay $6.

Applying to Get the Driving Record

One convenient way to obtain your driving record is to do so online. You’ll need your driver’s license number and issuing date, and your social security number and date of birth.

If you prefer to apply online, you will complete a Request for Driver Information (SCDMV Form MV-70) and mail it with a check for $6 to

If requesting your record by mail, you’ll need to submit a Request for Driver Information (SCDMV Form MV-70).

Fees for Getting Your Driving Record and Payment Methods

The driver record points summary is free. The complete driver record costs $6. If you order the driving record online, you pay the fee with a credit or debit card. If you order the driving record through the mail, you pay with a check or money order. Do not send cash through the mail.
