How to Renew a Driver's License in Arizona
An Arizona Driver's License must be renewed in person at a local Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) office or authorized third party office.
WHEN TO RENEW YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE
- Arizona issues an extended driver license that does not expire until you are 65 years of age. But every 12 years you must have a new photo taken and test your vision.
- You can renew your license any time in the six months leading up to its expiration.
- Every 12 years, the Arizona Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) will send you a notice requesting that you to visit a local driver license facility for a new photo and replacement driver license.
- If you fail to obtain a replacement photo license every 12 years, many of your service privileges will be revoked including eligibility for online services and obtaining duplicates for lost licenses.
TO RENEW IN PERSON
- Bring expiring license.
- Bring acceptable proof of identification (see the Arizona Driver License Manual for details).
- Provide your Social Security Number.
- Have your vision tested and a photo taken.
- Pay a renewal fee of $10. Arizona MVD accepts payment by cash, check or money order. Some branches also accept credit card payments.
