Registering Vehicles in Georgia

Non-resident military stationed in Georgia are not required to register their vehicles in Georgia as long as the vehicle displays valid license plates from their home state.

There are two counties within Fort Benning: Chattahoochee and Muscogee. If you live in McGraw Manor or Custer Terrace you may register at the office in Uptown Columbus (Muscogee County). All other housing areas including Kelly Hill will need to register in Cusseta (Chattahoochee County).

When registering your vehicle you will need:

  • a military ID
  • title or manufacturer's certificate of origin
  • proof vehicle is covered with GA liability insurance
  • odometer reading
  • date of purchase
  • date of birth of the first person named on title
  • tag fee of $38 (cash or money order)

If there is more than one owner, all parties must be present, or have a power of attorney to sign title application.

For a leased vehicle, the original power of attorney from the leasing company is needed.

To renew your registration you can get an ad valorem exemption tax form from the JAG office to avoid extra costs.

USAREUR registrations are only valid for 30 days upon return from overseas.
