Renew or replace your South Dakota Driver’s License
If you plan to visit South Dakota during the COVID-19 pandemic,
please be advised we are not taking walk-in customers at our driver exam stations.
All in-person visits to a South Dakota driver exam station require an appointment.
It may take weeks before an appointment time is available.
Please schedule your appointment well in advance so you can time the appointment
to coincide with your visit to South Dakota.

If you are a South Dakota resident who travels full time, you can renew your license/ID card or apply for a duplicate license/ID card online or by mail.
In addition to the standard renewal documents, you’ll also need to provide:
- A completed Residency Affidavit
- A receipt from a South Dakota hotel/motel, campground or RV park to prove one night of stay within the last year. The receipt must include your name and South Dakota address.
- One document, no more than one year old, proving your personal mailbox (PMB) service address. This document could include a receipt from the PMB business or a piece of mail (cannot be handwritten) with your PMB address on it. Virtual addresses or virtual postal addresses will not be accepted.
If you have friends or family in South Dakota and plan to use their address, you must complete the Consent for Use of Address form.
