Cancel Vehicle Registration


If insurance is to be canceled for any of the reasons listed below, you should cancel your vehicle registration BEFORE canceling your insurance. If you fail to cancel your vehicle registration you will be assessed a $25.00 lapse fee. If the $25.00 lapse fee is not paid within 30 days of the print date on the suspension notice your registration will be suspended and an additional $60.00 suspension fee will be assessed for a total of $85.00.

Valid reasons for canceling a registration are:

  • Vehicle is now registered in another state
  • Vehicle was sold or traded to a dealer
  • Vehicle was repossessed, stolen, wrecked, salvaged by insurance company or junked
  • Vehicle is not being operated because the vehicle is inoperable or stored and used seasonally for agricultural or other purposes
  • Military Personnel ONLY: Vehicle was stored during absence from the State of Georgia pursuant to military orders

The primary vehicle owner must come into our office to voluntarily cancel the registration or go online here. You will need to have your driver’s license and the vehicle tag number of the vehicle you are canceling.

If the vehicle is to be placed back into operation and you have established valid Georgia insurance coverage once again, you must visit our office or go online here to have the current vehicle registration reinstated. If the vehicle registration has since expired, you will need to renew the vehicle registration at that point.
