Not receiving a renewal notice does not relieve the registered owner from the obligation to renew the vehicle’s registration by the due date. If the owner does not receive a renewal notice, it is still the owner’s responsibility to renew by their expiration date. Penalties will not be waived because the owner did not receive a renewal notice.
 

Internet: Be first in line -- every time.

Renew your tag online using the renewal identification number (RIN) printed on the front of your renewal notice. 

Credit cards accepted online are American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa.

NoteThe convenience fee to use a credit card online is 2.35% ($1 minimum fee). Fee is charged by the Georgia Department of Revenue when you pay. 

A tag cannot be renewed online if the vehicle:

  • Does not have a valid Georgia insurance policy, which must be electronically transmitted to the state database by the insurance company
  • Requires an emission test and one has not been completed
  • Weighs over 8,500 pounds
  • Is covered by a Georgia Fleet insurance policy
  • Is covered by a Georgia self-insured insurance policy
  • Currently has a specialty license plate that requires supporting documentation in order to renew the registration (e.g., military, certified firefighters and amateur radio plates)
  • Registered owner has a change of address

The vehicle registration must be renewed by the renewal date each year or tax and tag penalties will be assessed.

Telephone

Renew by telephone using your Registration Identification Number (RIN) listed on your renewal notice by calling the Georgia Department of Revenue at 1-877-496-0249. This service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Payment can be made by credit card for up to four tag renewals with a maximum total of $1000. Credit cards accepted for telephone renewals are American Express, Visa, Discover and MasterCard. 

Note: The Georgia Department of Revenue charges a credit card convenience fee of 2.35% ($1 minimum fee) to use this service.

  • Registered owner has a change of address

The vehicle registration must be renewed by the renewal date each year or tax and tag penalties will be assessed.

Mail

If renewing by mail, renewal payments should be mailed four weeks prior to the renewal date to allow time for processing. To ensure timely processing of all renewal payments and to avoid penalties, carefully read the renewal notice and the enclosed insert mailed with the notice for instructions and additional information. All renewal requirements must be met before the renewal can be processed. If a renewal is submitted without all the required information, it will be returned to the owner and tax/tag penalties will be applied. 

Payment methods include personal checks, money orders, MasterCard, Visa and Discover.

An emission inspection, if applicable, must be completed prior to mailing in your renewal to receive a current year decal.

Renewal payments can be mailed to:

          Gwinnett County Tax Commissioner
          PO Box 829
          Lawrenceville, GA 30046

  • Checks and money orders should be made payable to "Gwinnett County Tax Commissioner."
  • Gwinnett County tag offices cannot accept two-party checks.
  • If paying by check, the pre-printed last name and Gwinnett County address on the check must match the last name and Gwinnett County address of the registered owner of the vehicle.
    • Important Note: If you pay with a check, keep in mind that checks are processed, deposited and debited from your account very quickly, usually the next business day.  Before you write a check, make sure your account has enough money to cover it.

    • If your check is dishonored by the bank, a service fee will be assessed in accordance with state law and federal guidelines. In providing a check as payment, you authorize electronic representment if your check should return unpaid. Also, you authorize service charges and processing fees, as determined by law, to be debited from the same account via paper draft or electronic funds transfer.
  • Starter or counter checks are accepted but must have the bank routing and account number pre-printed/encoded on the check.
  • If paying by credit card, the last name on the credit card must match the last name of the registered owner of the vehicle.

Mailed-in renewal payments must be postmarked by the United States Postal Service on or before the renewal date or tax and tag penalties will apply. If the renewal is received without proper payment or required documents, the renewal will be returned and the due date cannot be extended. Tax and tag penalties will apply.

If you did not receive a renewal notice and would like to renew via mail, request a renewal notice.
