Plate Credit is a new service available to Arizona motorists to view the remaining credit on a current license plate.

The purpose of Plate Credit is to allow the customer to identify the exact fees that can be applied toward the next vehicle registration.

  • The first step is to enter the plate number and your last name or full company name.
  • The second step allows you to view the credit available.
  • The last step is an optional survey.

Anyone with an Arizona license plate can use Plate Credit.

  • An Arizona license plate number.
  • The last name or company name of one requesting the plate credit.

  • Vehicle License Tax (VLT)
  • Commercial Registration Fee (CRF)
  • Weight Fee (WGT)
  • Motor Carrier Fee (MCF)
  • Use Fee (UTX)
  • Processing Fee (PRC)*
* A processing fee required by AZ law of $12.00 is assessed and will be deducted from the available refund amount. Only the remaining credit will be refunded.

  • Credit amounts are valid only during the month of inquiry through the end of the month.
  • Credit amounts will decrease with each month not applied.
  • Credited fees can only be applied toward the same type of fee. For example: The 'VLT' can only be applied toward a new 'VLT' and the 'WGT' fee can only be applied toward a new 'WGT' fee. A credit remaining toward the 'WGT' fee could not be applied toward a new 'VLT'.

You may pay with credit/debit/check cards. Check cards are linked to checking accounts and are accepted anywhere credit cards are accepted. Debit/Check card purchases are automatically deducted from the linked checking account.

In addition, some Kiosks are equipped with cash and check acceptors.
