South Dakota Title & Registration Information:  An off-road vehicle is any self-propelled, two or more wheeled vehicle designed primarily to be operated on land other than a highway and includes, but is not limited to, all-terrain vehicles, dune buggies and any vehicle whose manufacturer's statement of origin (MSO) or manufacturer's certificate of origin (MCO) states that the vehicle is not for highway use. If the vehicle is used, the certificate of title property transferred to the applicant must be attached.

All-terrain vehicles with four or more wheels & a combustion engine having piston or rotor displacement of 200 CC or more may be licensed as a motorcycle used on a public highway. The licensed four-wheel, all-terrain vehicle may not be operated on the interstate highway.

In South Dakota an OHV MUST be titled. If an OHV will be travelling on other than Forest Service or private roads, it must also be licensed for this use in the State of South Dakota.

If your state does not require a license for your OHV, you may obtain a temporary license to operate on South Dakota state and county roads.  A horn, headlight/taillight and mirrors are required to receive temporary licensing.  Go to and click on Black Hills ATV Permit Info.

    Thank you for the trail pass. We love riding in the hills

  2. Government at its best 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Aug 2017

    I was in government for 28 years. This is not the stereotypical government service we are all accustomed too. This service is outstanding, above and beyond in the world of government. I would like to see more local vendors selling the trail permits i.e. hotels, resorts and gas stations.

  6. South Dakota Trail Permits 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Aug 2017

    This is our 2nd atv trip that we will be taking to South Dakota; therefore, the 2nd time I have used the website to obtain the permits. Very easy to navigate and very fast turn around. Received permits in the mail a few days later. Awesome service!

  7. online access and super fast processing! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Aug 2017

    This is my 2nd trip to Black Hills for an off road dirt bike trip. Depending on your preference; get the annual or 7 day permit. Either are a bargain given the quality of the terrain.
    I ordered online and fat-fingered in the wrong date. A nice lady caught the mistake the same day, called my cell to double check and had it in the mail the same day!
    Wow; good ole fashioned customer service!!!
    Thanks you.
