New law requires GA license to register car

July 19, 2007

Albany - A new law that went into effect on the first of July requires you to have a valid Georgia driver's license to register a car. Will that change the way auto dealers do business?

David McCallister at Champion Motors says not for him. But he suspects dealerships that cater to illegal immigrants will be forced to stop selling to them. He thinks it's a good plan. "I feel like it has something to do with the tightening up of the immigration laws, making sure everybody's who they are," he said. "We always have required a driver's license to sell a vehicle to someone, to not only ensure who they are, but also for liability issues when they test drive your car."

The law may also have an impact on ad valorem taxes since folks without a Georgia license won't be able to purchase a car tag.
