About Changing Your Address on Your South Dakota Registration
You must request a South Dakota “DMV” change of address through the Department of Revenue (DOR) any time you relocate to another residence within the state. Filing a DMV change of address form soon after you move helps ensure that your registration renewal notices and other important vehicle information arrives on time.
When you change the car registration address, you will not be updating your SD driver’s license automatically. You must contact driver services to update all of your driving-related information. Review the following sections to learn more about how to file an address change with the SD DOR.
When is a South Dakota DMV change of address necessary?
An address change on car registration is required whenever you relocate to another home within the state of South Dakota. In addition, new SD residents must provide the SD DOR with their permanent address information as soon as possible.
Note: If your move to a new home happens around the end of your current registration period, it may be easiest to change car registration address information when you complete the vehicle registration renewal process.
Another reason for needing an address change on your registration is discovering mistakes on the current printed document. You can easily provide the correct information by contacting your county treasurer’s office or entering the information online.
How can I change my car registration address in South Dakota?
“How do I change my car registration address online?” is a typical question, as most people find this method the easiest way of updating information. Entering your change of address online on the MySDcars website is a simple process. When you update your records online, your next renewal notice will arrive at your new address, and the address will be printed on your next registration card.
You can also visit your nearest county treasurer’s office and present the clerk with your license plate number and new address information. Use this method if you want to get a new registration card showing your current address. However, if you need copies of your registration or title printed with your updated address, be prepared to pay the fees associated with printing new materials.
