DMV Services in South Dakota

All licensing and motor vehicle needs in the state of South Dakota are handled by the Division of Motor Vehicles. You won't visit the DMV to obtain your license or title, though. You will go to the county treasurer or a licensing office for the Department of Public Safety instead. These offices offer you all of the registration, titling, licensing, and plate-related services that you need.

Getting a Driver’s License

There are Driver’s Licensing Offices all around South Dakota. Use the e-services to renew your license or ID card or schedule an exam if you don't want to go to one of the offices. 

The County Treasurer

Your registration, titling, and tag needs are taken care of by the local county treasurer. The required forms for the treasurer are available on the DMV website and at the treasurer's office. You should print them out and complete them before visiting the office because doing so speeds up the process.


Use the available e-services if you don't want to go to the county treasurer in person. You can use these services as long as your South Dakota driver's license is still valid.

With online services, you can:

  • Renew your registration
  • Report a sale
  • Print a seller’s permit

Disable your pop-up blockers before using the e-services. Additionally, utilize Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Internet Explorer 10 or greater. Make sure that "compatibility view" isn't enabled if you're using Internet Explorer 11. You will have problems completing your online form if you don't do so.
