DRIVER’S LICENSE

To obtain a South Dakota driver’s license, you must sign-up for a PMB (personal mail box) address provided by DakotaPost first.  We will provide you with a receipt showing that you will be a client of ours for the next year.  You will show this receipt along with a receipt from an overnight stay at a local hotel or campground (include your name and the name of everyone listed on the PMB,  along with your new mailing address on the receipt). You can then visit the Department of Public Safety, surrender your existing driver’s license, and get your new SD license with your new address on it.  Before you go, be sure you have the proper identification (CLICK HERE)! To lessen the wait, you can call ahead to schedule an appointment or arrive and register on-site.

Please note that if your name is now different than the name on your identity document you will need to bring additional proof, such as;

  • Certified Marriage Certificate – for all marriages
  • Certified Adoption Document
  • Certified Court Order authorizing a name change (divorce decree)

You will still need to put your PMB address at DakotaPost on your license. This ensures that South Dakota is in compliance with the Federal REAL ID ACT and will allow you to board airplanes within the United States, enter federal buildings, etc. Have other questions? Head to the Department of Public Safety homepage (CLICK HERE), check out our FAQ, or give us a call.
