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 www.custercountysd.com and click on Black Hills ATV Permit Info.

I buy passes every year. The places my family goes and the things we see are well worth the money.
Correspondence with the Forest Service Office is quick. I had a question and heard back in 24 hours.
Shipping is fast for standard shipping. I live on the East side of South Dakota. Ordered Friday night, had them Tuesday afternoon. That's 2 business days. Not bad guys, Thanks!

Recent years this product came from I believe Maryland. It took over 3 weeks to receive the licenses.
Now that they came from the S.D. office the licenses arrived in under 1 week!!
