Updates from the Georgia Department of Revenue Motor Vehicle Division
Print this Article | Send to ColleagueSelf-Service KioskThe Georgia Motor Vehicle Division of the Department of Revenue began offering Vehicle Renewal Services through the self-service Georgia Tag Kiosk in 2015. This solution meets all requirements for issuing vehicle registration renewals through kiosk services. Cobb County took the lead in piloting this program and has since seen steady growth in usage.The kiosk program is currently located in 45 Kroger grocery stores in local neighborhoods that allows Georgians to have access to tag renewals beyond the regular office hours of local tag offices, ultimately providing more convenience for Georgia residents to renew tags on nights and weekends.There are now 49 counties participating in this program with 60 kiosks located in 18 counties. The kiosks have been extremely well-received by customers, establishing new records each month in the number of tags being renewed.During the COVID-19 pandemic, these kiosks allowed participating counties to continue offering services even as their offices were shut down. Instead of facing backlogs, those counties promoting the use of kiosks were able to come back into the office with a more manageable number of people needing transactions. Kiosks are fast, easy to use, and allow customers to scan, pay, and print their tags in about two minutes. This program has been a great success and benefit to the citizens of Georgia.For more information about the Kiosk program and options for your county, please contact:GA MVD Kiosk program information: https://dor.georgia.gov/mvd-self-service-tag-kioskITI Kiosk program participation: Jeff Hielsberg 1.404.931.3005 or See the below map for the list of counties participating in the kiosk program.
