Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Why are your services special?

Because we spend all the time that is required to make you feel special. There is no Government DMV office in the USA that can make that statement. From our first contact with you until our job is done, we are there for you…. answering as many questions as you may have and sharing our knowledge.

The Government DMV offices throughout the USA are not permitted to solve problems for the public with regard to documents and procedures which are required to license vehicles. They will tell you what paperwork you need and no more than that. The burden of acquiring the correct documents is solely your responsibility

Many people who move to South Carolina also ship their cars, however, they are not aware of the laws and the numerous regulations that will permit them to register their vehicle. If they exceed 30-45 days, they can receive many traffic citations. We understand the stress a person can be under when re-locating. Carolina DMV Express Vehicle Registration takes the weight off your shoulders

Q. Why it is more time consuming to register my vehicle in South Carolina?

In South Carolina, payment of personal property taxes is required before a license plate can be issued or renewed. The taxes are paid directly to the county treasurer of the county where you live in South Carolina, not to the DMV. Tax rates vary and are determined by the county auditor in each county.

If you are a first-time registrant, you will need to take your title or current registration to the county auditor's office in order to receive a tax bill. The amount due is paid to the county treasurer who will issue a paid property tax receipt. Then proceed to the local DMV Office.

If you are renewing your South Carolina registration, you will receive a property tax bill/renewal reminder from the county treasurer's office. You may pay your property taxes directly to the county treasurer's office in the county where you reside. See Registration Renewals below for additional information.

Q. If I purchase a vehicle and the previous owner moves without giving me all the documents that I need and I can't find him, what happens?

Absolutely nothing! You will remain frustrated and you will be subject to receiving many citations if you exceed the 45 day limitation of time. Never ship a vehicle to South Carolina unless you make sure that you have everything that you need. Call us first. If you don’t have all the required documents we can help you to replace them.
