COLUMBIA, S.C. (WMBF) – Officials with the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles will head out on a statewide tour aimed at getting more residents their REAL ID driver’s license or identification card in 2020.
According to a press release, SCDMV’s Self-contained Hazardous Area Response Kits will be placed one day in each county over the next five months to allow people a convenient way to purchase the REAL ID.
These mobile offices will be operational from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the release stated.
During the first week of the tour, stops will be made in the Grand Strand and the Pee Dee. The dates and locations are:

To purchase a REAL ID, customers must bring with them all of the following:
· Proof of Identity (Government-issued birth certificate or valid US Passport)
· Proof of Social Security Number (Social security card, 1099, non-1099, W-2)

Beginning October 2020, S.C. residents will not be able to board a plane, enter a secure federal building or visit a military installation with a standard license. The new ID card puts South Carolina in compliance with the REAL ID Act, a 2005 federal law enacted for extra security following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
