ACC Tag Office Closing May 23 at Noon and May 24 for System Upgrade


The Athens-Clarke County Tag Office is joining offices around the state in closing Thursday, May 23 at noon and Friday May 24th for a new statewide system upgrade. According to a release from the ACC Public Information Office, the Georgia Department of Revenue (DOR) is installing a new state-of-the-art system, Georgia Driver Record and Integrated Vehicle Enterprise System (DRIVES), to upgrade and modernize the vehicle registration and titling system.

The new system will allow for more self-service options, improve customer service and enhance data integrity.

Customers are warned they may experience longer than normal wait times during June due to the new system. The longer waits will affect vehicle owners with renewal dates in May and June who normally renew in person. Individuals who ordinarily renew online will not experience delays.

In addition to closing on the 23 and 24th, all online motor vehicle related services, including online tag renewal services will be offline May 21st to 27th.

Tag offices will reopen Tuesday, May 28th at 8 am, after the Memorial Day weekend.

The Department of Driver Services will not be affected.
