About DMV Locations

Arizona's Motor Vehicle Services and Driver Services (MVD) are each part of the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT). Vehicle Services handles vehicle registration, titles, insurance, inspections, plates, abandoned vehicles, and exemptions for military personnel. Driver Services is responsible for driver's licenses and the issuance of state ID cards.

New vehicle registration must be done in person at your local MVD office. You will need to bring your title and proof of ID, complete an application, and pay a fee. In some areas, an emissions test is also required. If you need to renew the registration on your vehicle, be sure to bring the renewal form you received in the mail, as well as proof that the vehicle passed an emissions test (if required). You can renew online, via mail, or at a local MVD or third-party authorized MVD office. Boats and recreational vehicles are also registered with Vehicle Services.

Arizona's Driver Services Department issues “extended” driver's licenses. This license does not expire until you turn 65, but you must return every 12 years for a new photo and vision screening. You can apply for an extended driver's license in person at a local MVD office. In order to apply for a new license or identification card, you will need your Social Security Number and proof of identification and residence. New applicants and those not licensed in another state must pass a written and road test. Drivers between the ages of 16 and 18 will be issued a graduated license (Class G). To qualify for a Class G license, teens need to first carry a learner's permit for 6 months and complete an approved Driver's Ed program. Alternatively, they can have a parent or guardian submit in writing that the teen completed 30 driving hours, including 10 hours at night.
