South Carolinians are not lining up to get the state’s new driver’s license and identification card. That has some officials worried about hours-long lines next year at the 66 offices of the S.C. Department of Motor Vehicles, lawmakers were told Wednesday.
“I’m betting on six-hour lines because people aren’t coming in,” Motor Vehicles chief Kevin Shwedo told S.C. House members.
South Carolinians planning to take a domestic flight or enter a federal building or military installation after Sept. 30, 2020, will be required to show the state’s new driver’s license and ID card, called a REAL ID. A passport can be used to board a flight.
