How to Earn Your Driver’s License in SD
If you are on a territory of South Dakota and wish to drive, you are obliged to obtain a driver’s license. Teen drivers are required to enroll in the Graduated Licensing Program (GDL).
The GDL typically consists of the three levels:
- Learner’s permit. Consider applying if you are 14 years old. You are going to need your parent’s or guardian’s approval. Other requirements include submitting identification documents and SSN, undergoing vision screening, and passing an SD written permit test. Instruction permits stay valid for a year and the one-time permit fee is $28.
- Restricted minor’s permit. To qualify, you must reach 15 years of age. You will be asked to submit your identification documents, SSN, and parent’s approval. Also, you are to undergo a South Dakota driving road test or submit a Driver’s Education certificate with a minimum of 80 percent passing score. The fee is $28.
- Operator’s license. If you are 16, you can qualify for an operator’s license. You must not have any moving violations recorded before applying. Make sure to bring in your identification documents, your restricted minor’s permit and pay a $28 licensing fee.
Anyone age 14 and above can qualify for a motorcycle license in South Dakota. This will enable you to earn an instruction permit.
To gain a motorcycle instruction permit, you will be asked to pass a vision screening and an SD driver knowledge test. Note that your parent has to accompany you to the DMV office for your exams.
Once you gain your instruction permit, you will have to hold it for 180 days. To reduce this period to 90 days, you can undergo a certified driver training course. Undergoing the national motorcycle course reduces the period to just 30 days.
The next step is to gain a restricted minor’s permit. At this point, you will be asked to pass a driving test provided that you had no moving violations during the six months prior to applying.
As soon as you reach 16 years of age and can present a clear driving record, you can upgrade your restricted minor’s permit to an operator’s license.
Commercial Driver’s License
The first thing to do to get a commercial driver’s license in South Dakota is to gain a commercial instruction permit (you are required to already hold a valid driver’s license when applying).
Upon passing a vision screening and a knowledge test and undergoing a medical check-up, you will be issued a commercial learner’s permit which is active for six months.
The first step to getting your CDL is earning a commercial learner’s permit. You will be asked to:
To qualify for a full driver’s license, you will need to undergo a driving test. Note that the road test fee is $90 (excluding tax). The fee for earning an endorsement is $15 per endorsement.

One of the benefits of big cars is that you can enjoy plenty of space in your driver’s seat. The problem is to fill this space correctly, though in modern vehicles you get many opportunities to customize the driver’s seat as you wish.Read More
While the sales of manual cars in the USA have been decreasing significantly since the 90s, stick shifts are still popular in European and Asian countries, especially in developing economies, which is often explained by the price. Undeniably, vehicles with manual transmission are usually cheaper than automatics, but this is hardly the only reason for choosing a manual car. Experts and auto enthusiasts hold that driving a manual vehicle allows the driver to gain a completely new experience that is appreciated by drivers. They highlight the fact that many powerful sports cars come with manual transmissions and this is done for a reason – you can better feel the car and the speed while gaining full control over the gears. For the same reason, driving a manual car can be safer in winter with its slippery roads, but this also depends on your driving skills.Read More
Engine oil is a key factor in the lubrication system for your motor, which serves to aid the mechanical parts of the engine, reducing friction and providing cooling. Therefore, the untimely oil replacement leads to increased wear and heating up of the engine, negatively affecting its performance and resulting in its breakdown. And the engine repair or replacement involves heavy expenses amounting to thousands of dollars – is it worth the time and money saved by waiting to get your oil changed?Read More
Lane splitting should be understood as driving a two-wheel motorcycle between lanes or rows of traffic that are moving slowly in the same direction.

The practice is sometimes called filtering or whitelining, as well as there can be some other names since the practice is rather widespread across the world. Most European and Asian countries allow lane splitting, while in Australia, for example, it is legal only in some provinces.Read More
