Driver-testing closed April 27-28

All South Dakota state driver exam stations will be closed for two days later this week for annual employee training, according to an announcement Monday from the state Department of Public Safety.

Director Jane Schrank said the stations would be closed Friday and Saturday. The only station usually open on Saturdays is in Sioux Falls.

“Unless it is a holiday or inclement weather, like we had earlier this month, we rarely close the driver exam stations,” Schrank said. “But training for employees is also important. We wanted to get this word out now so people can visit the exam station at another time.”

Schrank said drivers have 180 days prior to the expiration date of their licenses to renew. For information about online renewal or documents needed for a license renewal, or locations of exam stations, click http://dps.sd.gov/licensing/driver_licensing/.
