PIERRE, S.D. – The state Department of Revenue, Division of Motor Vehicles announces that Visa has been added to the payment options for motor vehicle registration renewals completed online or through a self-service terminal.
“I am excited to offer Visa in our payment options,” said Hillmer. “This will allow more vehicle owners the option to use our automated registration renewal options that were not able to in the past.”
For both the online renewal and the self-service terminals, acceptable forms of payment include electronic check, debit or credit cards (Visa, MasterCard or Discover).
For online motor vehicle registration renewals completed through SDcars.org, the vehicle registration and license renewal tags are mailed to the vehicle owner. Motor vehicle registration renewal self-service terminals dispense the vehicle registration and license renewal tags directly from the machine.
Registration fees and a service fee apply for online and self-service terminal renewal. The service fee is $1.50 per electronic check or 2.25 percent of the transaction total for payments made by credit or debit card. Customers who renew online will also be charged mailing fees.
A vehicle owner can renew their vehicle registration through the automated options up to 90 days prior and 30 days after the expiration of their current license tags.
Motor vehicle registration renewal terminals are available in: Kessler’s in Aberdeen; the County Fair Food Store in Mitchell; the Public Safety Building on Kansas City Street and the Rushmore Mall in Rapid City; the Department of Revenue Pierre Office at 445 E. Capitol Ave.; the Get-N-Go at 5400 E. Arrowhead Parkway and the Hy-Vee Food Store on 49th and Louise in Sioux Falls; and the Hy-Vee Food Stores in Brookings, Watertown and Yankton. Vehicle owners from any county can use the terminal with the proper identification.
In addition to the online internet renewal and renewal by self-service terminal, the regular option of renewing in person or by mail at the county Treasurer’s Office is also available.
