SC DMV starts charging $30 for bad checks, plus fees

The South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles is starting to charge a $30 fee to bad check writers.

Spokeswoman Beth Parks says those who write bad checks will get a letter informing them of their status, and they then must pay the amount of the check plus a $30 returned check fee.

DMV will not accept a personal check from these individuals for three years. In the past, the agency allowed bad check writers to do business with cash.

Now, until all fees are paid, customers won't be able to renew driver licenses or vehicle registration.

They will not be able to replace a lost or stolen driver license or license plate, apply for a disabled placard, or purchase a copy of their driving record.
