Assuming you drive less than 6000 miles a year, don’t mind the $25/year additional fee and don’t want them personalized. This is a big win as the Corvette Club I’m a part of really got this done and I am extremely happy/proud of the work. Also happy that I can now run just a rear plate legally.
Beginning July 1, 2016, some South Dakota motor vehicles will be eligible to display South Dakota’s new rear only specialty plate.
The new plate, which is being implemented as a result of 2016’s House Bill 1164, will be available to qualifying special interest vehicles. To qualify for the new plate, these vehicles must be used only for recreational use, while accumulating less than 6,000 miles per year.
“The special interest license plate allows car enthusiasts to display a rear plate only, while also being ambassadors for the State of South Dakota,” said Lisa Weyer, Division of Motor Vehicles director. “The design was a collaborative effort by the DOR Division of Motor Vehicles and the car club representatives.”
Those who receive the special interest vehicle plate will still have regular registration fees along with an annual fee of $25.
