The SCDNR continue to experience higher than normal wait times on its boat titling and licensing hotlines.

To comply with Governor McMaster's executive orders and to ensure the health and wellbeing of both staff and customers, offices have restricted public access and are operating with a limited number of staff members.Because of this, they are experiencing high call volumes which are resulting in longer wait times.
