The handbook is a vital resource to become familiar with the state’s rules of the road and traffic laws. The South Carolina Driver’s Manual is published by the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and includes the following sections.

  • Driver’s License – rules of the road, permits, restrictions, regular license
  • General Information – safety rules, speed limits, stopping, parking
  • Road Test – steering, manual transmission, turning, following, yielding
  • Signs, Signals, and Markers – regulatory signs, warning signs, guide signs

The handbook is an excellent resource if you are preparing for the South Carolina permit test but don’t forget to test your newly acquired knowledge with our South Carolina permit practice tests.  Each practice test is designed to simulate the real exam and give your best possible chance of success on test day.  Combined with the handbook, practice tests have been proven to boost passing rates and help drivers understand the fundamentals of safe driving.
