Cobb County Car Registration Renewal Made Easy

Most states require you to continually renew your vehicle registration each year so it remains up to date and approved by the government. However, the process of getting your plates renewed can be stressful if you haven't done it before, not to mention time-consuming. Choose to handle your through DoNotPay for a faster process.

We are here to guide you if you choose to tackle the task yourself. On the other hand, we can also handle the chore on your behalf rather quickly if you just provide us with some important details.

How to Renew Your Tags in Cobb County by Yourself (If You Desire)

If you would like to handle your own car registration, we have the steps to help. Although an in-person option is typically available, you may not be able to renew this way when offices are closed for extended durations due to illness in the community.

Utilize Cobb County's Online Registration Process

Georgia Drives is the e-service provider for Cobb and all other counties. Utilize this website if you wish to renew your vehicle online. You have to verify the identity of yourself and your car if you wish to use this option, though.

To verify your identity, provide one of two things, either:

  • Your driver's license number
  • Your letter ID provided on any communications from the Department of Revenue regarding your automobile

To verify your vehicle's identity, provide one of two things, either:

  • Your license plate number
  • Your VIN

Utilize One of Cobb County's Tag Renewal Kiosks

There are also self-service kiosks available where you can renew your plates easily. You can use any of the locations throughout Georgia, but the ones in Cobb County are listed in the table below.

Tag Renewal Kiosks in Cobb County
  1. The Smyrna Kroger off South Cobb Drive
  2. The West Marietta Crossing Kroger off Whitlock Avenue NW
  3. The South Cobb Gov. Service Center off Austell Road
  4. The Brownsville Commons Kroger off Brownsville Road
  5. The Cobb County North Tag Office off Canton Road
  6. The Cobb County East Tag Office off Lower Roswell Road

Scan the registration renewal form you were sent, pay your registration fees with a credit or debit card, and wait for your tags to print. Some locations allow cash payment as well.

But if you’re not comfortable sharing your credit card information with a kiosk, or you’d rather just stay home, DoNotPay has a better way.

Cobb County Car Registration Fees

The renewal costs for your Cobb County registration vary. The type of car you have, combined with its year of manufacture, all plays a role in how much you'll pay. Upgrading to a non-standard license plate also costs you more.

A $20 renewal fee is charged to everyone. Residents generally do not pay any more than $200 total once all fees are added, and most pay far less than this when all is said and done.

Do I Need to Present Any Special Documents?

When you renew your registration, you must prove that you have valid insurance. You also need to verify that your vehicle passed an emissions inspection if it was manufactured more than three years ago. A smog check is necessary for light-duty trucks weighing more than 8,500 pounds and gas-powered automobiles newer than 1997.

You should get this inspection completed at least a few weeks prior to your renewal date. If it does not pass, you will need time to make necessary repairs to get it up to par and have it tested again.

When Will My Cobb County Registration Expire?

Vehicle registration generally lasts for one year. If you do not renew your registration within the appropriate time frame, you will incur a 10% fee on your tax plus 25% of your license plate cost.
