Renew License Plate Registration

License plates can be renewed at your County Tag Office.  You may also renew online, or at a Self-Serve Kiosk (if your county participates).

You should receive a renewal notice by the beginning of your registration month. If you do not receive the notice, or your notice is not calculated, contact your County Tag Office.

Even if a renewal notice is not received, the taxes and penalties still apply.

If your address has changed, have it corrected on your Georgia driver’s license or ID card. Then have your address changed at your County Tag Office. Note: The online process does not allow any information changes.

Online Registration

Online registration is available in some counties. Your renewal notice will have information about online registration if your county participates. To renew online:

  1. You must live in a participating county.
  2. You will need your Renewal Identification Number (RIN) located on your renewal notice or look up the RIN online.
  3. All registration fees, taxes, and convenience fees must be paid by debit card, credit card, or electronic check. If you do not have a renewal notice you can look up the renewal fee amount before beginning. (The application will show the actual cost before completing the transaction and you can cancel at any time before the transaction is complete.)
  4. Your vehicle must pass inspection before renewing (in counties requiring emission testing.)

Self-Serve Kiosk

Residents (in participating counties) can take advantage of Self-Service Kiosks. This is a fast and convenient alternative for completing vehicle registration renewal.

To use a Self-Service Tag Kiosk:
