DMV Offers Some Suspended Drivers Fixes, Time Cuts


By Alicia Barnes

BLYTHEWOOD, S.C. (AP) _ South Carolina's Department of Motor Vehicles is offering some drivers whose licenses have been suspended a chance to get their driving privileges restored.

From March 10-14, the agency is allowing drivers who qualify a chance to reduce or clear suspensions. Drivers must meet all requirements.

The program is offered at all DMV offices in the state but is not available to everyone. Drivers whose licenses were suspended for alcohol- or drug-related offenses are not eligible.

Department spokeswoman Beth Parks says drivers who were suspended for operating an unlicensed or uninsured vehicle may qualify for the program.

Fees must be paid and certain insurance forms may be required. Drivers with a clear record may apply for a new license. Some may have to take tests to get back on the road.
