Is there a grace period for expired license plates or Georgia vehicle registration? Georgia
Expired License Plates and Vehicle RegistrationThere is no grace period when it comes to car registration. You are expected and required to renew your registration in a timely manner. If you miss your registration's expiration date, expect to pay the following fines:
- 10% of the amount of ad valorem tax due ($5 minimum).
- 25% of the tag fees.
- Year-round registration.
- Four-month staggered registration (Talbot county only).
- Four-month non-staggered registration.
Your expiration date should be easy to remember because it falls on your birthday. But, just in case you need a reminder, your county will send you a registration renewal notice in the mail. It will include all of the information you need to know on how renew. Depending on your county, you may be allowed to conveniently renew online. Otherwise, you have two other options: in person or by mail.
TIP: If your registration is within days of expiring, renew in person at your local GA MVD office. This way you'll receive your registration certificate and license plate tags immediately. You don't want to get caught driving with an expired registration, because if you're stopped you will be ticketed and fined.
