Registering Fleet Vehicles

If you're interested in receiving license plates and registrations for your fleet, you should mail all of the following items:

Mail the documents to the address below:

PO Box 1498

Once your application is approved, the SCDMV will establish an expiration date for your fleet and issue the plates for each vehicle. The plates are permanent and do not require a decal.

You may delete or add vehicles to the fleet throughout the year.

If you add a vehicle, it must be properly titled in this state.

If you're deleting a vehicle, turn the plate and registration in to an SCDMV branch or complete the Application to Replace License Plate or Expiration Year Decal (SCDMV Form 452).
