How do I update my Arizona driver license if I currently have an expired license? Arizona

Updating Your Arizona Drivers License

Arizona is unique in that drivers are automatically issued drivers licenses that do not expire until age 65. However, you are required by law to update your photo and complete a vision screening every 12 years. You can do this by visiting the nearest AZ Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) office.

Senior Drivers


Drivers age 60 and older are issued licenses that are valid for five years. You will need to visit the nearest MVD office, complete a new vision screening, and get a new photo taken. No written test or driving test will be required for drivers license renewal.

You can complete the renewal process for the five-year driver license up to six months before it is set to expire. It is a good idea to take care of the renewal as soon as possible because Arizona does not send out courtesy expired license reminder notices and you don’t want to end up with a traffic ticket.

Temporary Residents


Temporary residents, such as military personnel and their families or out-of-state students can apply for a five-year Arizona license regardless of age. No written test or road skills license test is required for those who already possess a valid drivers license from their home state.

For more information about a drivers license or even the reinstate license process, contact your local AZ MVD office.
