An Arizona Driver's License must be renewed in person at a local Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) office or authorized third party office.

  2. You can renew your license any time in the six months leading up to its expiration.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.


You must:
  1. Bring expiring license.
  2. Bring acceptable proof of identification (see the Arizona Driver License Manual for details).
  3. Provide your Social Security Number.
  4. Have your vision tested and a photo taken.
  5. Pay a renewal fee of $10. Arizona MVD accepts payment by cash, check or money order. Some branches also accept credit card payments.
