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 make it more convenient. Students can take their written permit test at 123 Drive! on class days in Bluffton 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 their 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.

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!!!

A practice test app can be downloaded to your mobile phone under "SC DMV Driver Exam". The book to study can be downloaded from their website, Driver Manual.

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 (843) 263-5023 for Hilton Head/ Bluffton/ Hardeeville or (843) 575-5557 for Beaufort/Ridgeland.
