Pay Insurance Penalty

Motor vehicle owners and lessees are required by law to maintain continuous Georgia Liability Insurance coverage on vehicles with active registrations. Driving a vehicle while the registration is suspended, revoked, or cancelled is a misdemeanor. Additional penalties will apply, if convicted of driving a vehicle with a suspended or cancelled registration.

The following Insurance fees can be paid online or at your County Tag Office:

  • Lapse in Vehicle Insurance Coverage Fees
  • Vehicle Registration Suspension Fees

Payment of Insurance Penalties and Fees may not reinstate a suspended vehicle registration pursuant to the Department of Revenue guidelines for reinstatement.

Contact your local County Tag Office if you have questions concerning your vehicle registration:

Note: Payment transactions must be completed before midnight Eastern Standard Time of the due date to avoid late penalty fee.  Although your payment confirmation will reflect Pacific Time, your payment will be calculated using the Eastern Standard Time, date and time of your completed transaction.
