Interrupted tag, title services occurring this week

Cobb Tax Commissioner Carla Jackson is alerting county residents that tag and title services will be interrupted in various ways this week through May 27.

The reason is the installation of the new state motor vehicle system known as Georgia DRIVES.

A system upgrade, the Georgia Driver Record and Integrated Vehicle Enterprise System (DRIVES) will update and enhance the title and vehicle registration functions of the Georgia Department of Revenue.

The Georgia DRIVES system will use modern technology to streamline existing processes and enable more online services.

The Department of Revenue is implementing the system upgrade during Memorial Day weekend with the new system going live on May 28.

Here’s what to expect:

  • Through May 27: no kiosk or online services
  • May 23-27: no tag office, kiosk, mail or online services
  • May 27: closed for Memorial Day
