Gov. Noem amends executive order extending vehicle registration, titling

PIERRE, S.D. — Governor Kristi Noem signed an executive order amending the emergency declaration extending certain vehicle registration renewals and the time period to title newly acquired vehicles.

South Dakota residents who had been delayed in renewing their registrations during the months of March and May of 2020 will have until July 31, 2020 to complete their registration renewals.

Any newly acquired vehicles, whose seller’s or temporary permits expired from the end of March through today, will have until July 31, 2020 to title and register their vehicle.

Interest and penalties associated with the extended title and registration periods will be waived, as long as they are current before August 1, 2020.

As of June 2020, individuals have been required to complete their annual registration renewals on time.

Individuals will need to title any newly acquired vehicles within the allowed time frame. Interest and penalty charges will apply to missed deadlines.
