Florence DMV office temporarily relocated
Florence, S.C. (WPDE) —
The South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (SCDMV) has temporarily moved its Florence branch on East Palmetto Street to 407 Quinby Plaza in Florence beginning Monday, Oct. 23, due to extensive renovations, according to a news releases.
“This is the Florence office’s first full renovation since it opened in 1972,” said SCDMV Executive Director Kevin Shwedo. “Due to population growth in the Pee Dee, adding eight counters to this branch, while making it fully ADA compliant, was particularly important to providing quality service to all of our customers.”
For the time being, you will be able to complete the same transactions at the temporary office.
However, a release said motorcycle tests will continue to be given at the East Palmetto Street location.
Officials say you will begin the transaction at Quinby Plaza, but travel to the East Palmetto Street building for the actual road test, the release said.
“When considering offices to renovate, the SCDMV evaluates the average wait time for customers, the age of the facility, and the size of the office,” said SCDMV Director of Administration Trish Blake. “We’re confident this Florence renovation will result in a better customer experience for all South Carolinians who frequent this location.”
The contractor completing the work on the Florence branch has four months to finish the project.
There’s no firm date on the office’s reopening at this time.
