License Recovery

The South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) offers Provisional licenses to eligible applicants who need to drive to work while their regular licenses are suspended or revoked for a DUI.

Steps to Obtaining a Provisional Driver’s License During Your Suspension:

  • You must have no other suspensions following the DUI suspension except implied consent, implied consent under 21, BAC of .02 or greater, BAC of .15 or greater deriving from the same incident.
  • Enroll in the Alcohol and Drug Safety Action Program.
  • Obtain a certificate of SR-22 insurance. Your insurance agent can help you with this.
  • Pay the provisional driver’s license fee of $100.00.
  • If you have a second or subsequent DUI offense, make an appointment to have your ignition interlock installed by calling toll-free 800-499-0994. Guardian will verify your eligibility for an interlock with the DMV.
