(A169, R258, H3160)
AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 56-1-360, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO NOTICES BY THE DEPARTMENT OF HIGHWAYS AND PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION, SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT A NOTICE CONCERNING A PERSON'S DRIVER'S LICENSE MUST BE MAILED TO THE PERSON'S ADDRESS CONTAINED IN THE DRIVER'S LICENSE RECORDS OF THE DEPARTMENT.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Notice concerning drivers' licenses
SECTION 1. Section 56-1-360 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
"Section 56-1-360. When notice is required concerning a person's driver's license the notice must be given by the department by depositing the notice in the United States mail with postage prepaid addressed to the person at the address contained in the driver's license records of the department. The giving of notice by mail is complete ten days after the deposit of the notice. A certificate by the director of the motor vehicle division that the notice has been sent as required in this section is presumptive proof that the requirements as to notice of suspension have been met even if the notice has not been received by the addressee."
