Introduction

Arizona requires all residents to register their vehicles with Arizona’s Motor Vehicle Division (MVD). Residents are also required to maintain a valid registration on vehicles by renewing before the end of their registration cycles.

New to Arizona?

You need a first-time registration when you purchase a car or move to a new state. Learn everything you need to know about first-time registration on our Car Registration page.

Arizona Registration Renewal Cycles

Vehicles registered in AZ fall under one of three possible renewal cycles:

  • 1 year renewal
  • 2 years renewal
  • 5 years renewal

NOTE: Vehicles that only receive a “basic” emissions test, along with out-of-state exemptions, are NOT eligible for either renewal of 2 years or 5 years.

Five-Year Renewal

The following types of vehicles are eligible for a renewal of 5 years:

  • New vehicles that have not been registered in AZ or any other state before.
  • Vehicles registered outside of the Tucson and Phoenix metro areas.
  • Vehicles manufactured in 1966 or earlier.
  • Motorcycles 
  • Hydrogen, solar, and electric-powered vehicles.

AZ Registration Renewal Notice

The MVD will send you a renewal notice several weeks before your registration’s expiration date.

Your notice will include:

  • Your renewal fee.
  • Taxes due.
  • “Renew by” date (either the 15th of the month or last day of the month during the year in which you must renew).
  • Emissions testing requirement.
  • Outstanding issues (unpaid tickets or fines) that may prevent you from renewing.

Didn’t Receive a Renewal Notice?

You do not need an MVD renewal notice to renew your AZ registration. You are, however, responsible for renewing your registration on time even if you do not receive a renewal reminder.

If you didn’t receive a notice, contact your local MVD office or call the MVD help desk at (800) 251-5866 for help on how to proceed with renewing your registration.
