State gives drivers a second chance

Posted: Updated:

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - South Carolina is offering some drivers a chance to have their suspended licenses reinstated. Amnesty Week begins Monday, and runs through March 15.

You qualify for the program if you meet the following criteria:  If you're 18 and under and have had your license suspended for excessive points, if your license was suspended for operating an unlicensed taxi, if your license was suspended for driving an uninsured vehicle, or if your license was suspended for failure to pay traffic tickets or failure to pay property taxes.

You do not qualify for the program if your license was suspended for DUI.

To apply for the program, drivers must complete the eligibility application and visit the DMV. You may be required to take the vision and Knowledge of Road and Skills Test.

James Andrade was at the DMV in Myrtle Beach today and says he's happy the program will give his buddy, whose license was suspended for failure to pay tickets, a second chance.

"He's 18 years old and he has a young girlfriend who had a baby, and it's difficult for him to get to work," said Andrade.
