Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) Letter Instructions

Applying for GVWR Letter

GVWR Letter Applications may be submitted electronically by clicking here. Alternatively print the required form, and complete and submit it in-person at any GCAF Customer Service Center or select metro Atlanta tag offices.

After GCAF determines your application is complete and the supporting documents meet the requirements, your application will be conditionally approved. In order for the application to receive final approval, the vehicle and proof of ownership documentation must be presented at one of our GCAF Customer Service Centers for a visual inspection.

Required Documentation

GCAF only accepts documentation in English; documents in other languages will not be accepted. Additional documentation may be required in order to process the request for a GVWR Letter.

The following documentation must be submitted when applying for a GVWR Letter:

  • A completed GVWR Letter Application.
  • Copies of the following (scans, camera photos, etc., are acceptable but copies must be completely clear and readable):
    • Proof of ownership of the vehicle (in the form of a copy of the vehicle’s Georgia registration or renewal notice (current or from last year), or the vehicle’s Georgia title).


Please allow three (3) business days for a response. NOTE: If the application packet is complete, it will be processed within three (3) business days. If the application packet does not contain all applicable documents required by the extension, exemption, or waiver, or the documents were not verifiable, the applicant will be notified and the processing time will take longer. When the correct documentation is received, the processing time resets to the times outlined above. Applications are processed in the order in which they are received. The applicant will receive a confirmation number for an online submittal to acknowledge a successful transmission. Please use this number when referring to your application. The applicant will be contacted once the application (or extension, exemption, or waiver) is processed.
