License Plates and Tags
Getting your License Plates and Tags for a car, vehicle or trailer you own in Arizona is a requirement. To get these legal requirements, your vehicle must pass a state inspection. For this inspection, you should also have these documents ready:
- Vehicles Title (If you own it)
- Proof of legal insurance
- Completed title and registration application
With these documents in hand and ready, you can head to any local MVD, or third-party location to get the state inspection done. Here at 1Stop, we offer an easy and frictionless process of getting your vehicle inspected in hopes of passing the state test.
Once your vehicle has passed the inspection and you need to file for your plates and tags, we will help you take care of ordering and acquiring your plates and tags, we can even have them shipped to your home or our location depending on requirement!
Lost License Plates
Under Arizona law, for any vehicle to be considered legal and out on the road or highway and to be drivable, the vehicle must have its plates and tags displayed on the vehicle. Thus, if you happen to lose or misplace your license plate, or if it gets stolen, you are required to order a new license plate as soon as possible. This process requires you to have proof of your identity and vehicle information handy and with a fee of $5.
Here at 1Stop, you can get your plates or tags ordered through us, regardless of the circumstance or how they got lost. We won’t ask questions, all you have to do is bring your vehicle information, your ID / Driver’s License, and the cost of the fee. Once that has all been acquired, we will order the plates for you, and they should arrive within a week or two. We will notify you when they arrive!
Personalized License Plate and Specialty License Plate
The state of Arizona allows you to display a personalized license plate or specialty license plate that is unique to you on your vehicle. The requirement for your custom license plate is that it remains legible and displays your license plate. The design or style of the plate can be edited and altered through an MVD or third-party location when ordering your license plate. All the offered edits and customizations are legal and clearly show an example of the requirements, meaning if it is ordered through the MVD or us here at 1 Stop Title Loans and Motor Vehicle Services, it is legal to use. All fees must be paid in full when vehicle registration expires regardless of when plates are purchased.
If you wish to learn full details about customized license plate options visit or call the store nearest to you to inquire more details about this process. We would love to help you order your new specialty license plate!
Disability Plates and Disability Placards
By Arizona law, a disability parking spot is reserved for persons labeled disabled. Thus to park in the marked spaces the vehicle must have a clear declaration that it is under the ownership of a disabled person. One way of doing so is through a Disability Plate and/or Disability Placard. Disability Plates show and mark on the license plate that the owner has a disability. The Disability Placard is hung in the vehicle on the windshield or rearview mirror in clear sight for a law enforcement officer to see. The person with a disability must be the driver or a passenger in the vehicle when the disability parking space is used. Disability plates can only be displayed on a specific vehicle registered or leased by the person with the disability.
To get your disability plate, look at the customization options we offer here at 1Stop. We are sure to offer one to suit your need for a license plate to allow you this right. If you have trouble finding this, try calling our store or seeking help in-store, as we would love to assist you in any way possible.

This is an Arizona law, is it is up to the MVD to keep track and records of who the vehicle is owned by and where the vehicle is currently residing. Not updating this can place a penalty on the owner of the vehicle for not keeping it updated properly. This penalty would be placed on both the new owner and previous owner as it is the responsibility of both parties to keep track of and records the vehicle’s movement.
