South Dakota requires that people who engage in the business of selling vehicles, whether exclusively or in addition to any other occupation have a motor vehicle dealer license.
All businesses must become licensed with the Division of Motor Vehicles before any sales transactions may occur. Also, it is recommended that applicants contact the division prior to submitting a license application to make sure that the name you want to use for your business is not already in use.
Prospective Dealer Notice
In July of 2008, the Division of Motor Vehicles will implement a new title and registration computer system, SDcars. All licensed dealers will be required to use the on-line system once it is up and running at the county level. For more information, please contact the Division of Motor Vehicles at: firstname.lastname@example.org; phone 605-773-3541; or Fax 605-773-2549.
