We just left Georgia after living there for 3 years and when we went to register our cars in our new state, the DMV told us we had to mail our old plates back to Georgia or we would continue to be charged taxes and licensing fees by the state of Georgia. I've never heard of this before anywhere, and I've lived in seven states. Can anyone confirm? I am new to the forum. Thank you.

I just changed my license plate from MA to GA, and my MetLife insurance agent in MA said I had to mail him back my MA license plates. Otherwise, I would not get a refund of my premium that I've already paid. I also thought this was odd.

no, you own the plates in Georgia...that's why you can move the plate from one vehicle to another, you just re-register that plate. Therefore, if you're not registered out of state, you have a nice piece of scrap.

When I moved from GA to MA, I was able to register my cars in MA w/o a problem. About 6 months later, Fulton County mailed me a notice saying I must return my plates immediately. I still have my Cobb County plate since they never asked for it back. (My wife was in Cobb and I was in Fulton, and we moved to MA after getting married). I guess it depends on the county?

They shouldn't ask for it back. It's just trash.

I can't believe that they would ask for it back...heck, what if you sell your car and it's no longer yours...do you have to get the tag and send it back since the car isn't in your name anymore? Yeah, Fulton County sucks big time...I grew up in Fulton County and have NEVER heard of that garbage...

Gwinnett didn't ask for our vanity plates after we left, but we got a nasty gram that we were no longer insured and past our renewal date so they knew that we moved out of state.

I have moved to another state and I am no longer a Georgia resident. What do I do with my Georgia tag(s)?

If you have moved out-of-state and are no longer a Georgia resident, you may do one of the following with your tags:
• Donate your tags (license plates) to a tag or aluminum recycling program in your state,
• Return the tags to either the County Tax Commissioner’s Office in the county where you resided in Georgia or to this Department along with a note indicating the reason for returning, or,
• Use an aluminum tool to cut up the tag and discard the pieces.
For the address of the County Tax Commissioner's offices, [URL="http://www.city-data.com/forum/../tagoffices/selecttagoffice.aspx"]click here[/URL]. When submitting your tags to this Department, please mail them to the following address along with a note indicating the reason for there return:

Default Surrendering Your License Plates? NOT in Georgia but in many other states..

You are not required to return your Georgia license plates after relocating to a new state. Follow the link below to verify this information at DMV.org
