In South Carolina, people who have disabilities are entitled to certain privileges when it comes to parking. These privileges override those of other motorists, and are mandated by law.

Summary of South Carolina disabled driver laws

In South Carolina, disabled drivers are entitled to special plates and placards issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles. If you are disabled in South Carolina, then you can qualify for special parking spaces and other privileges.

Types of permits

In South Carolina, you can have either a permanent or temporary disability permit. Temporary disability permits allow you certain privileges for the duration of your disability. If you have a permanent disability, then your privileges extend for longer. Disabled veterans are also entitled to special privileges.

The rules

If you have a disability permit in the State of South Carolina, then you are the only person who is allowed to use handicapped parking spaces. This privilege does not extend to your passengers, or to anyone else who might be using your vehicle.

You are permitted to park in handicapped spaces, and also to in other spaces that are not designated as handicapped, without paying.

Visitors

If you are a disabled person who is visiting South Carolina, then the State of South Carolina will honor your handicapped placard or plates in the same way that they would those of their own state.

Applying

You can apply for a South Carolina handicapped plate or permit by filling out a Disabled Placard and License Plate Application. You must provide a letter from your doctor, along with a prescription. There is a fee of $1 for a placard, and $20 for a plate. Veterans’ plates are free, assuming proof of eligibility.

Additionally, if you work for an organization that typically transports disabled people using a car, van, or bus, you can also get a plate or placard for your vehicle. You can get one by completing the Organization Disabled Placard and License Plate Application and mailing it to:

SC Department of Motor Vehicles
P.O. Box 1498
Blythewood, SC 29016

Renewal

All plates and permits expire. Permanent placards are good for four years. Temporary placards are good for a year, and can be renewed at your doctor’s discretion. Disability plates are good for two years. If you renew before the expiry date, you will not have to provide a new doctor’s certification, but if you wait to renew, and the permit expires, you will have to provide certification.

Disability plates are renewed at the same time as you renew your registration.

Lost plates and placards

If you lose your plate or placard, or it is stolen, you will have to re-apply.

As a disabled resident of the State of South Carolina, you are entitled to certain rights and privileges. However, the state will not give them to you automatically. You have to apply, and you have to renew periodically under the law of the state.

Richard was an outstanding mechanic. After he arrived, the first thing he did after taking the initial pictures of the car is an assessment into what work was asked. He quickly verified that I did not need brake fluid and my front brakes even-though it affects his personal commitments and time, which I think is highly appreciate and thorough professional. He was detailed oriented - took time to make sure that all the issue are fixed. He paid attention to detail in overall car assessment- he goes above and beyond. He was also teaching me through the process which I found highly educational and appreciate him providing the information ensuring and making me comfortable what he was doing and explaining patiently all the questions that was thrown at him. When he works - you know he's highly skilled and experienced and knows his stuff. He is highly experienced. He is a "Master" mechanic in true sense :)
