Compare Auto Insurance Rates and Save Exclusive!

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


  1. 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.
  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.

In 2011 I obtained an Arizona Driers License. At the time we owned property in both Arizona and Indiana and the Indiana primary address was placed on my Arizona license card. Currently we have sold the Arizona property and now rent in Arizona for 5 months each winter. My Arizona drivers license expires on 3/11/2016 and I need to renew it. What do I need to do? I will not be returning to Indiana until late May 2016.
