(UPDATE) South Dakota Bill to Allow Single License Plate for Special Interest Vehicles Signed into Law
Legislation (H.B. 1164) to allow the issuance of a single license plate for special interest motor vehicles was signed into law by Governor Dennis Daugaard. The new law, favored by state hobbyists, requires that the single registration plate be attached to the rear of the special interest motor vehicle.
A special interest motor vehicle is “a vehicle that is collected, preserved, restored, or maintained by the owner as a leisure pursuit and is not used for general or commercial transportation.” The new law provides that the vehicle owner must sign an affidavit attesting that the vehicle is driven less than six thousand miles per year; is not used for general or commercial transportation, but only for occasional transportation, public displays, parades, and related pleasure or hobby activities. The owner will also be required to submit the odometer reading annually upon registration renewal.Thanks to all who participated in supporting this bill!
