Selling a Vehicle
Unless you transfer the tag from the "sold" vehicle to another vehicle within 30 days or cancel the registration, the Georgia Department of Revenue (DOR) records will indicate the vehicle is without insurance. You will get a notice that your vehicle's registration will be suspended and you must visit the Tax Commissioner's Office with a notarized Form MV18J to update DOR records. DOR forms are available at www.dor.ga.gov.
Cancel your registration at the County Tag Office when you cancel your insurance if:
- You sell or transfer ownership of a vehicle and you will not transfer the registration to another vehicle within 30 days.
- The vehicle will not be operated for 30 or more days.
