1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Online application assistance can simplify the process for many MVD related services for a fee, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more. In addition to the free forms and general instructions available from the MVD offices or websites, you will receive value added products such as a comprehensive Easy Guide containing information relevant to your service needs. Where possible, we will prepare your MVD forms and/or provide links to MVD online services. You will also receive 30 days of both emergency Roadside Assistance and the Repair Assist consultation service from Road America. Other benefits include an ongoing monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering important updates that affect drivers, important safety tips, trends, legislative updates and ways to save money on vehicle-related services.

2: By mail

Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the MVD in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local MVD.

3: Via a MVD office

If you prefer to access MVD services in person or your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at a physical MVD office location. Varying MVD offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the MVD closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your local MVD allows you to make a personal appointment. Read more below to see if an in-person visit is either preferred or required.




The car title is the document that shows ownership of a vehicle. This "pink slip," as it is often referred to, shows that you have assumed legal possession of the car in question. Thus, it is extremely important for you to make sure that the transfer of this document goes through correctly and without any problems. If you're buying from a dealership, you don't have any cause for worry, as it is the seller's duty to title the car for you. Nevertheless, if you're buying from a private seller in the state of Arizona, you are in charge of applying for the new title. And you have to fill out this title application form to do so.
