The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources’ Licensing and Boat Titling Office, located at the State Farmer’s Market in West Columbia, is now fully staffed. While operations resume at full capacity within the office, in-person transactions are not taking place at this time. Please note that ALL services can be completed by phone, online, or by U.S. Mail.
With a full staff, SCDNR will now be able to process paperwork, answer questions, and complete transactions in a more efficient and faster manner.
Please allow 4-6 weeks for us to process your application. Historically, this is one of the busiest times of the year for boat registrations, and South Carolina continues to rank in the top 10 states for boat registrations. Since all transactions are being done by mail, volumes have increased significantly. Our staff is working as quickly as possible to process and return your documents.
To purchase hunting & fishing licenses, permits, or tags, customers may visit www.dnr.sc.gov/purchase.
Boat titling and registration transactions can be made via U.S. mail. Send applications and paperwork to:
SCDNR, ATTN: T&R
P.O. Box 167
Columbia, SC 29202-0167
Details and instructions are available online at www.dnr.sc.gov/boating.
