SD Vehicle Registration Calculator


Once you have a YBA physical mailbox number, you can register your vehicle in South Dakota. There are plenty of benefits for registering your vehicle in South Dakota. We charge a $197 fee for assisting clients with registration.

*The South Dakota vehicle registration cost calculator is only an estimate and does not include any fees from late registration. Actual cost may vary. For an exact estimate, select “interested in vehicle registration” when signing up for an account and our specialist Carl will schedule an appointment with you.

Estimate includes 4% tax. Some info on the tax rate - SD tax is 4% based on the purchase price and anything that’s a benefit to the vehicle (like warranties and add-ons) less any trade-in allowance, with additional penalty and interest if not registered within 45 days of purchase. At 45 days, they begin a 1% of tax due on top of tax due for every month not registered, with a one-time penalty of 10% tax due at 60 days. And any tax paid to another state gets credited if 4% or more, some states charge less than 4% and then the difference is due.
