South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard signed into law legislation to allow the issuance of a single license plate for special-interest motor vehicles.
   

Legislation 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 6,000 miles per year, and 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.
