South Dakota Abstracters' Board of Examiners

Frequently Asked Questions


Does the Board require continuing education hours to maintain licensure?

No. The South Dakota Abstracters' Board of Examiners does not have a continuing education requirement.

How often are examinations given? How can I register?

The examination is given three times a year — February, June and October. You can register for the examination by downloading an application form and, if needed, a form to order a study guide. Both forms are available from our Forms Web page. Please see our licensing page for more information on the exam, or contact us using the information at the bottom of this page.

How often must I renew my license?

Individual licensees do not need to renew their licenses. Individual abstracters who do not engage in the business of abstracting for one year must re-apply for licensure when they come back to the profession. An abstracter's plant registration, on the other hand, must be renewed biennially.
