You Can Now Add Emergency Contacts To Your Driver's License For Faster and Proper Notifications In An Emergency

This release is a forward of information released by the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles yesterday. We beleive that this is a fantastic program that will indeed save lives and get timely information to family and loved ones during an emergency.

SCDMV announced a new online transaction that allows customers with a driver’s license, beginner’s permit or identification card to enter emergency contact information on the DMV website.

In the event of a collision or other medical emergency, law enforcement will have access to this information and may provide it to emergency medical personnel. We believe that this contact information will not only save lives, but ensure loved ones are immediately informed of potentially traumatic incidents.

To enter emergency contact information, visit the SCDMV website at and select Public Services from the Online Services menu. You may designate two individuals as emergency contacts by entering their name, address and telephone numbers.

You may change or update their information at any time by logging on to the system. We recommend that you add the information for your underage children, talk to your spouses about adding emergency contact information and help your elderly parents who do not have internet service enter their information.
