Brookings County residents have options for buying car licenses

The City & County Government Center remains closed to the public because of COVID-19, but county employees continue to process transactions.

There are several ways to process your Motor Vehicle transactions.


To renew your tags for license plates, you can renew online at the state Department of Revenue website.

There is a stand-alone drop box located on the west side of the City & County Government Center where you can leave your payment and a list of vehicles you want to renew. The drop box is checked on a regular basis. The postcard and/or letter that the state mailed out to you will have the amount due or you can call (605) 696-8250 and get the amount due.

You can also renew by mail. Send your payment along with what vehicles you want to renew to:
Brookings County Finance Office
520 3rd Street Suite #100
Brookings, SD 57006

If you have any questions regarding Motor Vehicle transactions please contact the Brookings County Finance Office at 605-696-8250.
