To drive legally in South Carolina if you are a non-US citizen, have the following documents ready:

After the Written Test

Once you finish with the South Carolina written knowledge exam, you are approaching the Class D license fast. The next step is to start preparing for the road skills test. After you spend the necessary hours practicing behind the wheel with your instruction permit, you will be ready to book the DMV road skills test.

Also, be ready to provide proof of sufficient vision. You need to get a vision test certificate proving your 20/40 visual acuity, as this is required before the road test.

After you’ve passed the vision and road skills exams, you will finally be issued a full SC driver’s license.
