FAQs - Augusta, GA Car Insurance

  • It’s the responsibility of your insurance company to communicate your insurance record to the Georgia motor vehicle database. They do this by submitting the information electronically to the Georgia Electronic Insurance Compliance System (GEICS). If you are unsure whether this has been done, call your insurance agent or check your insurance status online.
  • Georgia's Hands-Free Law took effect July 1, 2018. There are many specifics that go along with this law, but in short, drivers cannot have a phone in their hand or touching any part of their body while talking on their phone while driving. If you disobey this law, you could be in for some pretty hefty fines and—more urgently—points on your record, which will increase your insurance rates. The fine for a first conviction is $50 and one point assessed against your driver's license. Make the mistake twice and the fine is $100 and two points against your record. Three or more convictions for breaking Georgia’s Hands-Free Law will cost you $150 and three points on your driving record.
  • No. Vehicle emissions testing is required, however, in the 13 metro Atlanta counties in Georgia (Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry, Paulding, and Rockdale) in order for motorists to complete their vehicle registration. If you live in one of these counties (Augusta is in Richmond County), then for vehicles 25 years or older, emissions testing is required every year.
