Anyone needing a title for a vehicle they purchased from a private seller can now apply for one remotely.
Applications for a title for a motor vehicle purchased from a private seller had been temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic; however, the Hall County Tax Commissioner’s Office is now accepting applications through a variety of methods in order to keep serving citizens amid the current health crisis.
"Although penalties for not having a title have been waived through mid-May, we want to do everything we can to cut down on the number of people coming into our lobby once that grace period has been lifted," Tax Commissioner Darla Eden said. "We are opening up these remote applications in an effort to make sure customer experiences remain positive and wait times minimal, and we’re also hoping this move contributes to the overall efforts this community is making to stop the spread of the coronavirus."
In order to receive a title, the following items must be provided:
- A copy of a valid Georgia driver’s license or state I.D. with a Hall County residential address for each new owner. If titling to a business, applicants are also asked to provide a copy of their business license.
