About DMF

DMF is responsible for processing title and/or tag work for the following:

  • All dealerships selling to Gwinnett County residents.
  • Tag and title service companies registered to do business in Gwinnett County (transactions are processed for Gwinnett residents only). 
  • Gwinnett County businesses with multiple fleet vehicles. Businesses with more than five fleet transactions must come to DMF for service. 

Out-of-state dealers are required to mail all transactions to the following address:
750 South Perry St., Suite 110
Lawrenceville, GA 30046


Walk-Through Transactions at DMF

- Dealer representatives and tag/title services may also walk through a total of 12 transactions per day (six at a time). 

- Due to increased volume after 4 p.m. and our commitment to maintaining our policy of allowing representatives to submit up to six applications at a time, you must submit a separate form of payment for every two applications if you arrive after 4 p.m. 

- Representatives “walking through” a transaction must wait while the transaction is processed. If you must leave, the transaction is considered a drop-off and will be date-stamped and placed with the rest of that day’s work in the order in which it was received. 

- All applications must be complete and ready to process at time of submission. DMF will not make arrangements for vehicle owners to complete title paperwork after it is received. Incomplete paperwork will be returned to the dealership for correction. All applications must include the following documents:



Please note the following:

  • DMF can only process titles and registrations for dealerships selling to Gwinnett residents.
  • DMF can only process an application in which a dealership shows a direct interest in the vehicle. This includes being the seller, buyer or lienholder.
  • Ensure that all title and tag applications are completed electronically or by hand prior to bringing the documents to DMF. If applications are completed by hand, all fields must be legible. We cannot process incomplete paperwork.
  • Work is stamped with the current date and placed in order of the time and date in which it was received. Paperwork is processed in this same order.
  • Once paperwork has been received, individual transactions cannot be pulled out for any reason.
  • All employees processing or picking up work for a company, dealership or tag and title service are required to provide documentation that they are authorized to conduct business on behalf of the company, dealership or tag and title service.
  • DMF cannot fax vehicle information to dealerships.


Payment Methods

  • Payment types accepted are checks, cashier's checks and money orders showing the selling dealership as the remitter and credit cards in the dealership's name.
  • Credit cards accepted are VISA, MasterCard and Discover.
  • DMF cannot accept personal checks or personal credit cards as payment for dealership transactions.
  • Make all checks payable to "Gwinnett County Tax Commissioner." Our bank does not accept checks written using abbreviations (examples: GCTO, GCTA and GCMVD). Checks not made payable to "Gwinnett County Tax Commissioner" are returned along with the associated title applications and/or registration renewals.
  • Make sure that all payments are for the correct amount. If not, applications are returned, along with a request for verification of the transaction and the correct amount.
  • Note: Any dealer that has submitted payment to the Gwinnett County Tax Commissioner which was returned or deemed insufficient must submit certified funds (cashier's check or official check) for all payments submitted to Gwinnett County.
