PIERRE, SD – The South Dakota Department of Transportation (DOT), in conjunction with the South Dakota Department of Public Safety (DPS) and the South Dakota Department of Revenue (DOR), has officially launched a major update to the SDTruckInfo website.
The website is a central location for information about trucking in South Dakota, including Commercial Driver’s Licenses (CDLs); special loading permits; emergency advisories for the trucking industry; legal weights and sizes for loads; and rules and regulations for interstate, interstate, and agricultural carriers.
“This launch represents a major upgrade to the current system,” said Dave Huft, Intelligent Transportation Systems Program Manager for DOT. “The website is a true expression of the state’s commitment to safety, efficiency, convenience for the trucking industry, the traveling public and the state economy.
Highway Patrol Captain John Broers, who heads the Patrol’s Highway Carrier Division, said the update is partially funded by a grant from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
“The website provides a single portal to access vital information enabling motor carriers to operate legally in the state of South Dakota,” said Broers. “The newly designed website is better organized, has more content and offers easier navigation for our users. “
Users can also access contact details for South Dakota agencies and click on direct links to the South Dakota Automated Licensing System, SD511 Travel Information, other state trucking agencies, and the Federal Motor Carrier. Safety Administration.
“One of the newer features is a searchable electronic copy of the fully updated 2022 South Dakota Commercial and Agricultural Vehicle Manual,” Huft said. “We are delighted to offer the electronic version of the new manual in addition to the published hard copy, which will be available from SDDOT, SD Highway Patrol, SDDOR and County Treasurers in January 2022.”
