Welcome to Chesterfield County

Nestled between Charlotte, NC and Columbia, SC, these metropolitan areas allow for access to many of life’s pleasures while remaining relatively unspoiled by urban sprawl.

If you move to South Carolina from another state, whether renting or owning your residence,
South Carolina law (Code § 56-3-210) requires that you register your vehicle in South Carolina
within forty-five (45) days. Failure to do so is a misdemeanor subject to a fine of up to $100.
That is, you cannot reside in Chesterfield County and have your vehicle registered in another
state or county. Chesterfield County intends to pursue stricter enforcement of this law in the
near future. This notice is being published as a courtesy to any county residents that may be
unaware of this requirement in order to give them time to register their vehicle which may be
done by mail or in person at the SC Department of Motor Vehicles (scdmvonline.com).
