How do I renew AZ vehicle registration? Arizona

Renew Arizona Vehicle Registration

Your Arizona (AZ) registration renewal is due on the 15th of the month or at the end of the month. AZ will mail you a registration renewal form about 45 days before your car registration is due to expire.

You can complete the register car process as early as six months before the registration expiration date if a smog and emissions test is not required on your motor vehicle. Should your motor vehicle require emissions testing the earliest that you can renew your registration is three months prior to the expiration date.

Contact the Motor Vehicles Division (MVD) if you do not receive your renewal three to four weeks before you registration is scheduled to expire. You can renew the registration online at the MVD website or via the telephone by dialing (888) 713-3031. The automated telephone number is available 24 hours a day.

Data that you must provide or review and approve on the renewal application includes:

  • Your first and last names.
  • Your current street mailing address.
  • The license plate number.


Use your credit card to pay the renewal fee. The fee varies by motor vehicle type. However, the registration for a standard motor vehicle cost about $8 to renew.

You can also complete the renewal application in paper form and mail a check to the Department of Transportation to cover the renewal fee. Be advised that returned check fees are $25.

The MVD assesses a fee to late renewals. If you mail your registration form by the due date you will not be charged a late fee.

Late fees are as follows:

  • One month late: $8
  • Two months late: $12 (add $4 for each additional month the fee is paid late)


Make sure that your vehicle has passed the required smog check. Each required inspection is listed on the front of the renewal form.
