If you need to register your car or renew your tag, you shouldn’t wait until the end of the month to take care of it.

Georgia car tags expiring? Better renew them by today

You’re running out of time to renew your Georgia car tags this month. 

As the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported recently, vehicle registration in Georgia will shut May 24 to 27 while the state Department of Revenue installs a new vehicle registration software system. Service in many counties will be down for longer as local tax commissioners prepare for the new software and work through any bugs before they reopen. 

State and local officials are urging motorists whose car tags expire in May or June to renew to renew them by Monday to avoid delays. 

You can read more about the delays and the new software system here. For information about when local tag offices will be closed, check with your county tax commissioner’s office.
