The Market Common office will no longer only offer commercial driver’s license and motorcycle road tests, but it will also offer regular driver’s license (Class D) road tests. Additionally, four new staff members will begin working at the branch, and three new work stations (bringing the total to seven) will allow the agency to serve customers faster and more efficiently.

“Expanding the services at the Market Common office means a more convenient trip to the SCDMV for the South Carolinians who live in that immediate area and as far south as Murrells Inlet or even Litchfield Beach,” said SCDMV Executive Director Kevin Shwedo. “After a small renovation, the office will now be utilized to its fullest potential, which is a win-win for the agency and the people we serve.”

The branch will continue to open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. On Wednesday, the office will open to the public from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. after an hour of training for all SCDMV staff statewide.

“The growth along the Grand Strand prompted us to take a good look at how we could better serve customers in that portion of the state,” said SCDMV Deputy Director of Field Services Courtney White. “This was an easy answer that means shorter wait times and faster transaction times for all branches in Horry County.”
