New South Dakota license plate design for 2016 unveiled

SD Standard Plate 2016    PIERRE — An image of the new license plate design for the 2016 South Dakota license plate reissue was unveiled today.
The current plate design has identified South Dakota motor vehicles since 2006. Many existing plates are succumbing to age, damage and loss of reflectivity, all of which can create readability problems.
The design was a cooperative effort led by Gov. Daugaard, the Department of Revenue Motor Vehicle Division and the South Dakota Department of Tourism and reflects a partnership in promoting South Dakota. The new license plates will be issued beginning Jan. 1, 2016.
Department of Revenue Secretary Andy Gerlach said, “The 2016 reissue will add up to approximately 1.5 million non-commercial vehicle and motorcycle plates consisting of the standard plate, the emblem plate, personalized plates, amateur radio, low-speed vehicles and the commercial radio plate.”
The license plate reissue contract was awarded to Intellectual Technology, Inc., (ITI) from Fort Wayne, Ind., through a March 2015 request for proposal (RFP) issued by the Motor Vehicle Division. The RFP requested assistance to the Motor Vehicles Division with the implementation of a plate on demand system.
ITI will oversee plate production along with servicing a fulfillment center in Brandon,  to control quality, manage inventory and distribute license plates and annual vehicle registration cards through an on-demand system.  The plate on-demand system will reduce material waste while providing a higher level of customer service.
The license plates will continue to be made at Pheasantland Industries located in the South Dakota State Penitentiary in Sioux Falls.
The new plate design will not be available until Jan. 1, 2016 and can be acquired during a regular vehicle registration renewal period from several convenient methods:  local county treasurer’s office, self-service terminals (SSTs) throughout the state, and from the Motor Vehicle customer portal.
