SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — You will be able to skip more lines at the DMV. 

South Dakota’s Division of Motor Vehicles, within the Department of Revenue, has placed 20 new license renewal kiosks throughout the state, adding 10 new locations. The new kiosks will be able to update contact information and mailing addresses along with providing motor vehicle registration — dispensing tags on the spot.  

Director of Motor Vehicles Rosa Yaeger said the first kiosks went in place in 2011 and by 2012 there were 10 functioning kiosks in the state. Yaeger said the new machines have new equipment in them, including a wider receipt printer which will allow for seller permits to be printed in the near future. 

“They are very similar to the old ones, they just look shinier and brighter than before,” Yaeger said. 

There’ll be five kiosks in Sioux Falls, three in Rapid City and one in Aberdeen, Brookings, Huron, Madison, Mitchell, Mobridge, Pierre, Pine Ridge, Rosebud, Spearfish, Vermillion and Watertown. 

You can find the locations of the kiosks in the map below.

Yaeger said five kiosks are still in the process of being installed. She said more options will be available as more programming upgrades are added. 

A South Dakota Driver’s License or ID Card is needed for all transactions. You can receive more information about the kiosks on the state’s DMV website.

She highlighted the machines don’t take e-checks anymore. The only payment methods are debit and credit cards.

“Overall, the general public seemed to respond positively to them and as people became aware they were an option, we saw the numbers go up,” Yaeger said. “Last year due to COVID, the department saw even higher use from the kioski use.” 

Customers will soon be able to report vehicles sold, print a seller’s permit and renew drivers license at the kiosks. More information will come when those transactions will be available.
