If you are a company and need to change your address, mail in a signed request on your business letterhead. The request should include your old and new address along with a list of the vehicles you want changed. If all the vehicle addresses should be changed indicate all. Mail this request to Motor Vehicle Division, PO Box 2100 Mail drop 504M, Phoenix, Arizona 85001.

The emissions test result is automatically updated in the Motor Vehicle Division system. You may keep your Arizona Vehicle Emissions Inspection Certificate for your records.

The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) states that to avoid late penalties from the Motor Vehicle Division (MVD), all testing and repair must be completed prior to the registration expiration date. Vehicles failing the initial emissions test are not subject to a late registration penalty fee provided the test was conducted prior to the registration expiration date and the registration is renewed within 30 calendar days of the original test date.

If your vehicle failed the emissions test and your registration is expired your vehicle may be eligible for a Restricted Use 3-Day Permit or a 30-Day General Use Permit.
 

A penalty fee is assessed when a registration renewal payment is not received by the expiration date indicated on a vehicle registration form. Online renewals are updated to a record instantly.

To avoid the late renewal penalty, the registration must be paid by the 15th of the month or the last day of the month, whichever is applicable. The late renewal penalty fee is $8 for the first month of delinquency and $4 for each additional month, not to exceed a total penalty of $100.

Renewals are due by the expiration date, whether or not a renewal notice is received.

Trailers are registered based on usage (non-commercial or commercial) and declared GVW (gross vehicle weight). Non-Commercial usage with a GVW of 10,000 pounds or less is registered as Permanent. Commercial usage with a GVW of 10,000 or less is registered as one, two or five year registration. Trailers with a GVW over 10,000 are registered as permanent (see chart below).

Within the Vehicle Registration Renewal users will be asked to declare the intended usage on trailers that are registered with a GVW 10,000 or less. When used non-commercially permanent registration fees are assessed. Permanent registration is a one time fee and a “PERM” tab will be mailed to the owner. By registering as “PERM,”  you’ll never pay vehicle license tax or registration fees again for this trailer.

Permanently registered trailers with a personalized and/or specialty plate are subject to the annual personalized and/or specialty plate fee.
