Savannah, GA asked in DUI / DWI for South Carolina

Q: If convicted on a DUI in a non-sr22 state (i.e.; Pa) do I need sr22 in South Carolina when I get my license here? Now SC

I've complied with all conditions of Pennsylvania criminal code and DMV. Scheduled restoration on April 6, 2017 by Pennsylvania. But, I'm now (and have been since February 2016) a SC resident. SC requires sr22 if convicted of dui, and Pennsylvania does not. I have no driving history in SC, but will be applying for my SC Driver's License with my restoration letter from Pennsylvania. Am I required to have sr-22 when the DUI occurred in a non sr22 state? I have no points or any problems in South Carolina.

A: Yes, South Carolina will require that you get SR-22 insurance and may require that you take an ADSAP course. Contact the DMV in South Carolina to find out what additional requirements they may have for you.
