South Dakota Drivers License Temporary Extension
Changes, Changes, Changes. Since the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, so many things have changed, both worldwide and closer to home, here in South Dakota. For example, if you have an April birthday, chances are one of the things you might have had to do was update your drivers' license. Well, this year, you get a little extra time! According to South Dakota State News;
Gov. Kristi Noem has signed legislation that gives the Department of Public Safety Cabinet Secretary the authority to order the temporary extension of the expiration date for certain driver licenses.
“Since the COVID-19 emergency, the state’s Driver Licensing program has received several hundred calls each day from citizens worried about renewing their driver license or ID card,” said DPS Cabinet Secretary Price. “I have authorized the Driver’s Licensing Program to extend these expiration dates for the length of the Governor’s state of emergency for COVID-19, beginning March 13, through the duration of the emergency declaration plus an additional 90 days.”
Even if you don't 'think' you need to update your drivers' license this year, this would be a good opportunity to see 'when' you need to update yours.
