    South Dakota's Codified Laws

    Many of us are intimidated by legalese, or government-speak. The thought of having to find or do research on information written in this manner―such as the South Dakota Codified Laws―is enough to intimidate most drivers.

    However, there are times when you really might need to have access to this information. For example, in the motor vehicle realm, perhaps you want to contest a traffic ticket, and need to know exactly what the law says about the infraction. Or, maybe you're thinking of becoming a vehicle dealer, and need to know more about the rules governing them.

    The good news is that it's surprisingly easy to find this information online.

    For instance, most rules concerning motor vehicles fall under Title 32. Within this title are 39 chapters (with a few sub-chapters), each dealing with a different subject. Some of the areas covered include the state highway patrol, vehicle dealer regulation, motor vehicle inspection, traffic regulation, emergency vehicles, child safety restraints systems, and school buses.

    Check Your Driver's License Status

    Whenever you need or want to check the status of your driver’s license, you can order a driving record report. This record will spell out if your driver’s license is currently valid. Should your license have been revoked or suspended, the report will indicate that according to what’s on record at the DPS. This report will also show points against your license and, in some cases, information on any accidents you have had.
