If you have a tag renewal looming in DeKalb County, you might want to go ahead and get that done.

The county says all tag and title renewal services will be unavailable May 23 through May 28 due to system upgrades.

“The Georgia Department of Revenue (DOR) is installing a new state-of-the-art system, Georgia DRIVES, to upgrade and modernize the vehicle registration and titling system,” a press release from the county says. “The new Georgia DRIVES system will enable more self-service options, improve customer service, and enhance data integrity. In preparation for the statewide system upgrade, DeKalb County Motor Vehicle services will be offline and unavailable for a brief period.”

“Beginning Thursday, May 23, vehicle services will be closed in preparation for the system upgrade,” the county says. “Implementation of the new system will require the vehicle registrations and titling services to be unavailable May 23 – May 28.
