South Carolina Registration Success!
I just wanted to share my experience with registering and titling a skoolie in South Carolina.
First off, I drove to West Virginia to purchase my bus. 2007 IC CE300. 40 ft, air brake, 31,000 GVWR. Drove it home, no tags, just a BOS and insurance with no issues.
I live in Edgefield County, which may have helped with the ease of my process, but walked into the tax auditor's office, paid my taxes on the bus. No questions asked. Drove to the DMV, walked in with my receipt for paying my taxes, bill of sale, WV title and told them I needed to register and title my bus as a motorhome and that I have already pulled the seats out.
Paid my SC title fees and walked out 10 mins later with a plate, registration and title in the mail!
The only concern I had going into this was the bus being 31,000 GVWR and being required to get a Class E license. But when filling out the title form, it asked for empty weight and GVW. I wrote down 17,000 lbs empty and 31,000 for GVW as that was what the WV title said. To my surprise my registration says 17,000 on it. So I will likely be playing dumb when it comes to needing to change my license if I ever end up in that scenario.
Anyways, hopes this helps to all my SC skoolie people!
