Timing & Costs

Our fee is $195 usd, we will DHL the docs to South Dakota and we will receive a link that we will pass on to you to pay the state on-line. If it is a car from out of state with no ownership change the fee is based on value that the SD Clay County treasurer’s office determines.

If there is a change of ownership a bill of sale is required, and the fee is an addition 4% of sale price to the state of SD.
Once the fee has been paid to the state they will send the new plates and registration to San Diego and then we deliver to the local branch, total turnaround time for this is about 2 weeks.

Roughly 90 days later the new title will arrive at our local branch.
