Title & Registration

All commercial license plates are renewed annually. The staggered renewal schedule is based on the first letter of the last name of the vehicle owner or the first letter of the business that owns the vehicle. Click here for more information on Title and Registration from the Department of Revenue Motor Vehicles Section.

Registrations with a tonnage of 28 tons or greater must supply to the county treasurer a stamp verified copy of Form 2290, Schedule 1 (proof of filing/payment of the Federal Heavy Vehicle Use Tax) at the time of registration for the most current tax period. These tonnage decals are mailed to the vehicle owner from the Motor Vehicle Division’s Pierre office upon verification of proper filing. Tonnage decals of less than 28 tons are issued by the county and do not require Form 2290. Questions on Tonnage Decals can be emailed to DORForm2290@state.sd.us.
