South Dakota Department of Motor Vehicle Delaying Title Printing

minute read


PIERRE, S.D. – Due to paper supply issues, the South Dakota Department of Revenue’s Motor Vehicle Division has delayed printing most paper titles effective immediately. The paper used for printing titles is very unique as it has built in security features to prevent fraud. The Department anticipates being able to start printing paper titles mid-February 2023.

If an individual has a legitimate reason for acquiring a paper title, they can request one by using an online form found here: https://sddor.seamlessdocs.com/f/1504. Reasons for requesting a printed paper title include the titled owner moving out of state or the vehicle ownership needing to be transferred.  If there is a lien on the vehicle title, the lienholder will have to request that the title be printed. All requests will be reviewed and processed as paper supplies allow.    

Titles are still being processed and individuals are able to check the status of their paperwork using their VIN number using the following website page: https://apps.sd.gov/RV66Renewals/checkvin/NewCheckVIN.aspx.
