South Dakota Vehicle Titles

How to sign your South Dakota Vehicle Title

Be sure to sign and print your name exactly as spelled on the front of your South Dakota title. Avoid erasures, scribbles, strike-throughs and use a black or blue pen only. If your South Dakota title shows a lien or a bank name printed on the front, then your title will need to be signed off by the lien holder or have a separate lien release letter.

  • On the back of the title, sign where it reads “Signature of Seller(s).”
  • On the back of the title, print name(s) where it reads “Hand Printed Name(s) of Seller(s).”
