Post urges drivers to update registration
Placeholder Image
Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield officials are urging drivers to update their Department of Defense vehicle registrations.
The installation is giving soldiers, family members, Army civilians and contract employees until Sept. 8 to correct any issues with their vehicles’ registrations. Installation police will begin issuing tickets Sept. 9 to drivers who have expired registrations. Drivers may also have to get a temporary vehicle pass or may be denied access to the installation if their registrations are not in order.
Vehicles belonging to soldiers (including allied officers) and their family members, Army civilians and contract employees affiliated with Stewart-Hunter must register their privately owned vehicles, per Army regulation. Vehicles can be registered at the vehicle registration office in room 2064 at the Soldier Service Center (building 253), Stewart’s Gate # 1 or Hunter’s Wilson and Montgomery gates.
The person who is applying for the registration must personally visit the office. Documents that person will need to bring include a valid driver’s license, current vehicle registration, current proof of insurance and a valid identification card.
People newly assigned to Stewart-Hunter must register their vehicles no more than five working days after in-processing, even if they have a valid DoD decal from another installation. After buying new vehicles, car owners have five working days to obtain the vehicle registration after receiving state registration and license plate.
Retirees and their family members, surviving spouses and children of deceased military members who possess valid military ID cards may also register their vehicles.
Decals are normally issued for long-term registrants, typically more than one year. Vehicles with decals may use any open gate or lanes. More information is available at any of the vehicle registration offices.
