New Guidance for Georgia Insurance Filing Process

The Georgia Department of Public Safety and NIC Insurance Filings are changing the requirements for filing online. These changes are designed to speed up reviewing and approving filings for motor carriers participating in intrastate or interstate commerce. Motor carriers can submit their applications online, by mail, email, fax, or by scheduling an appointment at the Georgia Department of Public Safety’s facility.

Here’s What’s New

Forms E, H, and K will now require information from the Georgia Intrastate Motor Carrier registration process to be included on the form. You should include your Passenger Carrier ID number and GIMC number when you request a Georgia state filing. This will help you avoid any unnecessary delays.

GIMC is the process where commercial carriers, freight forwarders, leasing companies, and brokers register their companies with the Georgia Department of Public Safety. This is required for motor carriers operating certain motor vehicles in intrastate commerce within Georgia. Other motor carriers participating in interstate commerce have to register under the Unified Carrier Registration or UCR. Click here to find out the steps you have to take to begin the GIMC registration process.

You’ll need to complete 2023 registrations with the GIMC and the UCR before December 31, 2022. The application fee per vehicle after the deadline will be $25.00 per vehicle. Enforcement begins January 1, 2023.

The GIMC Registration Process

Along with the changes noted above, you must include the following information as part of your application:

  1. Completed Georgia Intrastate Motor Carrier (GIMC) application
  2. Form E: required by for hire only. It is issued to the applicant by the insurance provider. Have your insurance company (not your agent) file evidence of public liability and property damage insurance; (Note: The information on your application and Form E must concur)
  3. Complete and sign a notarized Georgia Security and Immigration Act (GSICA) Affidavit as required by OCGA § 50-36-1
  4. Copy of the front and back of a “secure and verifiable document” as required by O.C.G.A. § 50-36-2
  5. Proof (diploma, certificate, etc.) that the applicant has completed, within the preceding 12 months, an educational seminar on motor carrier operations and safety regulations authorized by the Commissioner of Public Safety.
