Chatham County Tax Commi s – sioner Sonya L. Jackson is excited to announce the launch of the new Automated Automobile Tag Renewal Kiosks. The kiosks have been installed at two Chatham County Kroger locations: Savannah Kroger (318 Mall Blvd.) and Berwick Kroger (5720 Ogeechee Rd.).

Since 2019, over 500,000 vehicle registrations have been renewed at participating locations across Georgia. Similar to an ATM, the tag renewal kiosks allow residents to renew their automobile registrations in as little as two minutes. Customers simply scan their Georgia driver’s license, pay with a debit/ credit card, and print the Georgia registration card and license plate decal. Kiosk instructions are available in English and Spanish. With the introduction of the kiosks, Commissioner Jackson has provided Chatham County residents with both an efficient and convenient tool. Commissioner Jackson said, “We are proud to release this innovative feature to Chatham County! With the uncertainty of COVID-19, our kiosks provide residents with a rapid, safe alternative for tag renewals. After hours and on the weekends, customers are now able to get their decals instantly. Residents can locate the kiosks at Kroger on Mall Blvd. and Ogeechee Rd. Another kiosk will be installed at the Kroger on Wilmington Island on September 15, 2021.”

She also remarked on the flexibility that the kiosks offer to all Georgia residents who live in counties that participate in the kiosk system. Residents in participating counties can use any kiosk, even if it is not located in the county where they reside. So for instance, if a Gwinnett County resident (a participating county) happened to be in Chatham County and wanted to renew their registration on Sunday evening at Savannah Kroger (Mall Blvd), they could do so.

Per state law, every vehicle registration in Georgia is required to be renewed annually. For individuals, registration expires at midnight on your birthday and must be renewed during the 45 day period preceding your birthday. These new kiosks now make it easier than ever to stay up to date!
