The South Dakota Department of Revenue, Division of Motor Vehicles, wants to remind motor vehicle owners that the second phase of the non-commercial motor vehicle registration fee increase will go into effect on July 1.
House Bill 1192, which was passed in 2011 over Gov. Dennis Daugaard’s veto, raised vehicle registration fees in a two-phase process. The first phase took place in 2011, and the second increase will happen next month. The new funds from the increase will go to local roads and bridges.
Registration fees are computed according to the weight schedules for non-commercial vehicles. The new fee rate schedule can be viewed online at the Division of Motor Vehicles Web page, which is located at http://www.state.sd.us/drr2/motorvehicle/index.htm (see “New Fee Schedules.)
