Complete an Application for Motor Vehicle Title and Registration. The application must be signed by the record owner(s) or by an authorized agent for the record owner(s). If the application is signed by an authorized agent, a power of attorney document must be attached to verify the appointment.
If the vehicle was purchased out-of-state, a bill of sale, purchase order or sales contract must be attached. If the dealer price certification on the application for title (MV-608) is not complete and the applicant purchased the vehicle from a South Dakota dealer, a purchase order must be attached.
Purchase price on a new vehicle with no trade-in is the total consideration whether received in money or otherwise. Total consideration must include cash down payments, cash rebates, money and any other item given in consideration of the vehicle. Discounts are allowed, but a purchase agreement is required to substantiate the discount.
Current License fees are computed according to the weight schedules for noncommercial vehicles.
