New rules start for registering vehicles in SC

BLYTHEWOOD, S.C. (AP) - The new year brings new rules for registering vehicles in South Carolina.

The Department of Motor Vehicles says people must now have some form of identification to title and register a vehicle. The law affects both individuals and businesses.

Officials say the new law shouldn't be a problem for most people - usually a driver's license will be enough.

Other forms of identification include a state ID card, an out-of-state driver's license or ID, a passport with a visa, an Employment Authorization Document or a permanent residency card.

Business owners must provide a federal identification number or, for sole proprietorships, a Social Security number. They also must prove their business location with a utility bill, a property tax receipt or business permit.
