Small towns face big problems at driver license stations
KSFY News is looking further into recent issues facing driver license stations across the area.
Here is a look at some times and places to obtain a driver's license.
Parker: The driver license station is open on the first Wednesday of each month, but a worker there tells KSFY people still spend 2-3 hours waiting in lines. The worker also says the lines are longer because people from Sioux Falls actually travel to Parker for their driver licenses.
Canton: People from Canton lost their driver license station almost three years ago. Now, many have to travel to Sioux Falls for a license or renewal.
Madison: Every Tuesday employees from the driver license station in Huron travel to Madison and set up so people in Madison can obtain a license.
Salem: Lost its station several years ago but still receives calls and questions. Employees in Salem tell us people are directed to go to Sioux Falls or Mitchell for a driver's license.
Huron: This station is open every Thursday and Friday -- but still it's a limited option.
KSFY also found many of these county courthouses are open, and in most counties you can still purchase your license plates but not your driver's license.
