Due to a system upgrade, the Hall County Tax Commissioner’s Office and state Motor Vehicle Division offices will not be able to process transactions for about a week in mid-January.
The Georgia Department of Revenue (DOR) DRIVES (Driver Record and Integrated Vehicle Enterprise System) is upgrading to a new version of the system used by the local tag offices to register and title vehicles.
Vehicle registration, titling services, online services and tag renewal kiosks will be unavailable from Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2021 through Monday, Jan. 18, 2021 so the upgrade can be implemented.
During this time, law enforcement will still have access to motor vehicle records through a statewide backup file.
Vehicle owners with renewal dates in January are encouraged to get it done sooner rather than later to avoid delays.
After Jan. 19, there may be delays and long wait times, especially on Mondays and Fridays and around lunchtime.
More information about the upgrade and upcoming schedule changes can be found at hallcountytax.org.
