No Permit Yet? No Problem!
We know how difficult it can be to get to the DMV before 4:00 to take the Beginner's Permit test so we are going to try and make it a little easier for you. Students can now take their written permit test at 123 Drive! on class days at 12:30 p.m. or by appointment. If successful, they can simply take the results anytime within 30 days of the test date to the DMV to have their picture taken and permit issued.
There is no additional charge to students already enrolled with us. You will still have a small fee at the DMV for the issuance of the permit.
For any future students wishing to take the permit test with us, there is a $25 fee at the time of the test which will be applied in full to your driving package upon enrollment.
Any new driver in SC (never previously licensed), no matter their age, is required to hold their Beginner's Permit for 181 days before they are eligible to attempt the road test for their license.
If a student is not successful taking the permit test, they are allowed to try again the next day and the next day and the next day until successful. Studying helps!!!
Practice tests can be found online here. Class days are posted on our Home Page. To schedule an appointment to take your permit test, at our Hilton Head or Bluffton office locations, please call Doreen at (843) 263-5023.
