Rush Service

While much of the paperwork sent into the office takes 7-10 days to process, Registrations, Transfers, Duplicates and Revisions can be expedited by paying a “Rush Fee.” A “Rush” request must be submitted in writing with “Rush” on the envelope or in the email subject to ADGA Customer Service. Rush work will be started during business hours the day it is received and processed in 2 – 3 days if there are no issues with your paperwork/documents. Every effort will be made to complete your rush service request within 3 business days or less.

The fee for Rush Service is 100% of the processing fee for the work being requested, plus the applicable processing fee.
