As in many states, the cost to register a car in Georgia varies somewhat depending on the year, make, model and value of the vehicle. There is a flat rate fee of $20 for all vehicle registrations. Additionally, there is an $18 title fee for new titles issued by the state of Georgia. It will cost $8 for a replacement title. Additionally, if you submit the title application form in person or via expedited mail service, an extra $10 must be included. Sales tax must be paid on any vehicle purchased. This is often automatically taken care of when a vehicle is purchased from a dealer in Georgia. However, if it has not been or the vehicle was purchased out of state, sales tax based on the county the vehicle will be applied at the time of registration. Lastly, Georgia requires that an Ad Velorum tax be paid on all vehicle purchases. This tax is based on your vehicle's value and the financial needs of the county within which you will be registering it.
