Contact: Theresa Hodges, Spink County Auditor

REDFIELD, S.D. – Spink County will become a “county issue” site for driver licenses beginning February 19, 2020.

County issue sites are unable to serve first time CDL applicants, CDL applicants with hazardous material endorsements and non-citizens. Licenses and ID’s processed at a county issue site are not issued immediately but are printed and mailed to the driver within a few weeks (a temporary permit is issued at the county site).

The Spink County site will be located at the Spink County’s Auditor Office located on second floor of the Spink County Courthouse, 210 E 7th Ave, Redfield. Hours are the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of every month from 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM. Drive tests are by appointment only.
