Stephens County Tag Office offline today through Monday, January 18
Stephens County in partnership with the Georgia Department of Revenue will begin upgrading its Georgia Drives Motor Vehicle System today.
According to Stephens County Tax Commissioner Dene Hicks, this upgrade will keep the county up to date with the latest technology advances and will ensure they have access to the most recent enhancements and features of the software.
She says implementation of the upgrade will require the vehicle registrations and titling services, including e-services, to be unavailable starting today Wednesday, January 13 through Monday, January 18.
Hicks says during the implementation period, the Stephens County Tag Office will be open but will not be able to process motor vehicle transactions.
All online motor vehicle related services including online tag renewal services will also be offline through Monday, January 18.
Hicks says during the week of January 19 through the 22, walk-in customers may experience delays and longer than normal wait times.
Law enforcement will still have access to motor vehicle records through a statewide backup file.
Again, beginning today and running through Monday, January 18, the Stephens County Tag Office will not be able to process motor vehicle transactions in-person or online.
