The South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (SCDMV) remains open, but the agency is adjusting hours of operation at select branches beginning Wednesday, March 25, 2020.
The Belton DMV branch is one of nine offices that will only be open Tuesday and Thursday until further notice. The Anderson branch will continue to remain open Monday through Friday during normal business hours:
The reductions result from staffing limitations and the agency’s commitment to enforcing social distancing recommendations in our branch offices. Despite the reduction in operating hours at several locations, the SCDMV is committed to “ensure the proper function and continuity of state government operations,” in accordance with the Governor’s Executive Order No. 2020-11.
“In these uncertain and rapidly changing times, the SCDMV remains committed to serving citizens throughout our state,” said SCDMV Executive Director Kevin Shwedo. “We will optimize employee manning to sustain five-day a week service at 44 of our branch offices. We will reduce the number of days we are open at some locations, but will ensure that every location remains open to customers at some point during the week. We are implementing this plan for the foreseeable future, but other reductions may be needed based on reduced employee availability.”
