PIERRE, S.D. (KELO AM) – The state Department of Revenue, Division of Motor Vehicles, announces the installation of a self-service motor vehicle registration renewal station in Yankton.
The 24-hour self-service terminal (SST) is available at the Hy-Vee Food Store, located at 2100 Broadway Ave.
This machine is the final installation of the sites selected in November 2012 according to Deb Hillmer, director of the Division of Motor Vehicles.
“We are pleased to be able to place an SST in the newly remodeled Yankton Hy-Vee Food Store,” said Hillmer. “South Dakota now has 10 self-service terminals operating throughout the state.”
A vehicle owner can navigate through the registration renewal process using the terminal touch screen (voice assistance available) and a valid South Dakota driver’s license, South Dakota identification card, or if a company, the information provided on its renewal notice. Once the payment is processed by the terminal, the license renewal tags and vehicle registration are dispensed directly from the machine to complete the transaction.
The SST allows vehicle owners to register up to 90 days prior and 30 days after the expiration of their current license tags. A $2 convenience fee per vehicle is assessed.
Vehicle owners from any county can use the terminal with the proper identification.
Motor vehicle registration renewal terminals are also available in: Kessler’s in Aberdeen; the County Fair Food Store in Mitchell; the Public Safety Building on Kansas City Street and the Rushmore Mall in Rapid City; the Department of Revenue Pierre Office at 445 East Capitol Ave.; the Get-N-Go on Arrowhead Parkway and Dawley Farms and the Hy-Vee Food Store on 49th and Louise in Sioux Falls; and the Hy-Vee Food Stores in Brookings and Watertown.
In addition to the self-service terminals, the regular options of renewing in person at the county Treasurer’s Office, by mail through the county and online Internet renewal through www.SDcars.org are also available.
For both the online Internet renewal and the self-service terminals, acceptable forms of payment include electronic check, credit cards (MasterCard or Discover only), or ATM/debit cards supported by Pulse, Star, NYCE and Accel.
