Residents and Visitors

New Georgia residents must register in person within 30 days of establishing residence.

Visitors who remain in the state for less than 90 days, and out-of-state students are not required to register their vehicles in Georgia as long as they display a valid license plate from their home state, unless they:

  • Accept employment in the state
  • Engage in any trade, profession, or occupation in the state
  • Enter their children in Georgia public schools.

In these cases, they must purchase a Georgia tag and/or decal within 30 days after entering Georgia.

Liability Insurance

Georgia requires liability insurance to register a vehicle. Insurance must be electronically transmitted to the Georgia Insurance Database prior to registration. You must also have a Georgia Drivers License prior to registration.

Specialty Plates

In addition to the standard license plate, Georgia offers a wide variety of Specialty License Plates. You may visit the State of Georgia website to view the available license plates and the specialty plate requirements.
