You need to register your car in the state of Georgia either when you buy it or if you move to Georgia from another state. As a general rule you have 30 days to get your vehicle registered in the state of Georgia. So how do you go about it? If you bought the vehicle through a registered car dealer, he or she will likely handle the registration process, making your life a lot easier. However, if you need to get it registered yourself, this article can help you.
How to prepare
First of all, get your car insured for accident liability; you will need the proof of this when you go for car registration. . Next, make sure you have a valid driver’s license (they will want to see it). If you just moved to the state, you might be asked to give evidence of your residency.
Get your car inspected for emissions and obtain evidence that it passed. They can’t let you be on a road with a safety hazard, can they? If you bought your car from a dealer, the likelihood is that you just need to obtain the evidence which will save you the time and effort it takes for the inspection. If you are still paying loan on the car, you should have documentation giving details of the loan policy.
If your car already has a Georgia title, you are in luck. You don’t need to apply for title change. However, you will need to produce the original valid Georgia car registration certification so make sure you have it. But let’s say you got the car from another state and want to register it here, first you will need to get the title changed by completing the title/tag application. When filling in the form, make sure to get it signed by all those who might own the car.
After you are done with all the running around, collecting and producing evidence, you can sit back and wait for your Georgia car registration plates to come, so that you can start driving.
