When Inspections Are Necessary

If the out-of-state title was issued with a salvage, rebuilt, reconstructed, or similar brand / legend, then the vehicle must pass a Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) inspection prior to the issuance of a license plate or title.

If an MVD inspection is required, the applicant may wish to transport the vehicle to one of the state-operated inspection stations. This will help speed the process. The applicant should contact either their county tag office or MVD headquarters at 404-362-6500 for the location and hours of operation of these inspection stations.


To request a MVD inspection, the applicant should complete a T-22R (Request for MVD Inspection) and submit it to the following address along with the above documents and a certified check or money order for the total fees due. The certified check or money order should be for the total fees due payable to the Motor Vehicle Division (e.g. $18 title fee, any title penalties that may be due and the $100 inspection fee):
