Voluntary Cancellation of Registration

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.

Voluntary Cancellation of Vehicle Registration by Registered Owner

  • If you are not going to drive your vehicle, you may voluntarily cancel your vehicle registration with your County Tag Office without surrendering the license plate. 
  • It is illegal for you to drive or allow someone else to drive a vehicle with a cancelled, suspended or revoked registration or if the vehicle is uninsured.

Important: To avoid any lapse and restoration fines, you must cancel your vehicle’s registration before cancelling your vehicle’s insurance coverage.
