License Plates and Tags

Getting your License Plates and Tags for a car, truck, RV, motorcycle 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 visit any one of our 8 1 Stop MVD to get the state inspection done. We offer an easy process to get your vehicle inspected in hopes of passing the state test.

Once your vehicle has passed the inspection we can file them properly and will have them shipped to your home or our location for pickup depending on specific requirements!

Lost License Plates

Under Arizona law, for any vehicle to be considered legal on the road or highway, the vehicle must have its plates and tags displayed visibly. 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.

At 1 Stop MVD, you can get your plates or tags ordered through us, regardless of the circumstance or how they got lost. All you need to do is bring your vehicle information and ID/Driver’s License.

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 code.

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, visit one of our 3rd Party MVD locations.

Sold Notices

Anytime you sell, trade, or donate your vehicle in Arizona, you have up to 10 days to update the database with a ‘Sold Notice’. This is an Arizona State Law. Wem= 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. A buyer or seller can visit one of our 8 locations to update the state database.
