Ordering a Special Tag

To learn more about special tags, visit the Georgia Department of Revenue website. This website will provide you with a list of available tags, including any qualifying documentation required to apply for the special tag, the fees associated with applying for and renewing the special tag, and sample pictures. 

Some tags require qualifying documentation in order for the tag to be issued.

Contact us to verify the documents required:

  • By Phone: Contact us at 770-822-8818 during business hours (Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm, except holidays)

 Most special tags require the following:   

  • A manufacturing fee to be paid for the initial issuance of the special tag.
  • An annual special tag fee in addition to the tag renewal fee due at the vehicle owner’s registration period.
  • Any applicable ad valorem taxes due.

The registered owner’s valid Georgia driver’s license or Georgia ID card will be required to request a special tag.

If you wish to request a special tag and it is time to renew your registration:

  • Online:  When renewing your tag online, you will see a list of special tags that you can apply for while completing your online renewal.  Choose the special tag by clicking on the appropriate choice and then follow the prompts. Any additional fees involved will be calculated in the total for the online renewal.  At the end of the transaction, there will be confirmation information to print and retain until you receive the special tag in the mail. The special tag will be mailed to the registered owner’s address.
     
  • By Mail:  Write in the name of the special tag and add any additional fees involved in the spaces provided on the payment coupon portion of the renewal notice. Submit the completed payment coupon with any required documentation necessary for the special tag to be issued to Gwinnett County Tax Commissioner, P O Box 829, Lawrenceville, GA  30046. (Please read all applicable instructions on the renewal notice.) Once the payment is received and processed by the Gwinnett County tag office, the special tag will be mailed to the registered owner’s address. 
     
  • In Person:  When you visit one of the five Gwinnett County tag offices, inform the employee at the window which special tag you would like to request prior to renewing your vehicle registration. You will need to provide any required documentation necessary for the special tag to be issued. All additional fees involved will be calculated into the total for the renewal. 
     
  • By Telephone: At this time, special tags can not be requested over the phone.

If you wish to request a special tag and it is not time to renew your registration, you can exchange the tag currently registered to a vehicle: 

  • In Person: When you visit one of the five Gwinnett County tag offices, you will need to bring the tag that is currently registered to the vehicle along with any required documentation necessary for the issuance of the special tag.  Any additional fees involved to issue the special tag will be charged at the time the tag exchange is processed. 
     
  • Online, By Mail or By Telephone:  Tag exchanges cannot be processed online, by mail or over the telephone.

If you would like to choose your own letter and/or number combination (prestige tag), a Personal Prestige License Plate Application (Form MV-9B) must be completed. All necessary information and instructions to apply are located on page two of the application. In order to verify that the combination you are applying for is available, you can visit one of the five Gwinnett County tag offices, or contact us at Tag@gwinnettcounty.com or 770-822-8818.

As an agent of the state, the Tax Commissioner is required by Georgia law to collect these fees if taxpayers choose to purchase special tags. The Tax Commissioner does not determine the fee amounts for special tags or prestige plates

Note:  If all required fees are paid and the special tag requested is not in stock, you will receive a 90-day temporary operating permit which must be displayed visibly in the back window of the vehicle the special tag is registered to.  Once the special tag has been manufactured, it will be mailed to the registered owner’s address.
