SC DMV announces 'no pay, no play' for bad checks

BLYTHWOOD, SC (WMBF) – The South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles will no longer provide services to customers who write bad checks. Many services will remain unavailable until the customers pay all dishonored checks and fees, officials announced in a news release Tuesday.

"We've received more than $2 million in checks that were returned for non-sufficient funds," said SCDMV Executive Director Kevin Shwedo. "In the past, people who wrote bad checks to the DMV didn't face any significant consequences. They could continue to conduct business with us as long as they paid cash. Not anymore," said Shwedo. "The state, not just DMV, loses millions of dollars every year due to bad checks.

Customers who write bad checks will receive a letter from DMV informing them of their status with the agency, and must then pay the amount of the check plus a $30.00 returned check fee. After the fees are paid, DMV will not accept a personal check from these individuals for three years.

Although DMV will not suspend an individual's credentials, it will deny certain services until all fees are paid. For example, customers will no longer be able to renew their driver license or vehicle registration. Customers will not be able to replace a lost or stolen driver license or license plate, apply for a Disabled Placard, or even purchase a copy of their driving record.

    Summer hasn't even technically started, yet the summer-like heat and humidity will continue to reach uncomfortable levels the next few days. We start off this morning with mugginess in the air. High temperatures reach near 87 along the Grand Strand but easily make it into the low 90s inland. The heat index will feel like 95 to 100 along the coast, but more like 102 to 105 inland.
