The Tax Commissioner is responsible for the registration of motor vehicles and the collection of all registration fees, taxes and penalties specified by Georgia Law. Title Ad valorem taxes or Ad Valorem taxes, if due, are collected when the vehicle is registered.
All motor vehicles 1986 and newer must be titled (not applicable to trailers weighing less than 2000 lbs.)
Vehicles purchased from an individual or business (not a dealership) must be registered within 7 days of the purchase date.
Vehicles purchased from a dealership or individual must be registered within 30 days of the purchase date or late fees and penalties will apply.
Individuals moving to Georgia have 30 calendar days after establishing their residency to register their vehicles. However, if your out-of-state registration is not current, you should come to the Cherokee County Tag office as soon as possible.

***A Valid Georgia driver's license or Georgia Identification card is required as personal identification when you title or register or make other changes to your account. Georgia Department of Revenue Motor Vehicle Division uses the Georgia driver's license number as an account number so that all vehicles owned or leased by an individual can be consolidated in one account.
**An important note to remember when titling a vehicle - motor vehicles are covered under the privacy act in Georgia and no one but the registered owner can process transactions for the vehicle. If the vehicle is in a spouses name you will not be able to process transactions on that vehicle unless you have a limited Power of Attorney.***
