Georgia Drives Update

The Georgia Department of Revenue (DOR) is installing a new state-of-the-art system, Georgia Driver Record and Integraded Vehicle Enterprise System (DRIVES), to upgrade and modernize the vehicle registration and titling system. The new Georgia DRIVES system will enable more self-service options, improve customer service, and enhance data integrity.

Implementation of the new system will require the vehicle registrations and titling services to be unavailable beginning at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 23 until 8:00 a.m. Tuesday May 28. Customers might experience longer than normal wait times when visiting the tag office. Vehicle owners with renewal dates in May and June who normally renew in person are encouraged to do so prior to May 20 to avoid delays and possible longer than normal wait times during the first couple weeks after implementation. Individuals who ordinarily renew online should not experience delays.
