What Is The Purpose of an Arizona License Plate?

An Arizona license plate is used to connect a driver to a vehicle as well as their auto insurance. It must be easily observable in designated locations. There are two basic types of  AZ license plates: standard Arizona license plates and specialty plates. The former has the state name, a setting sun, a background of mountains, and the phrase “Grand Canyon State” on it. On the other hand, specialty plates are issued for vehicles owned by organizations or groups. These custom Arizona plates will cost a bit more each year.

    Priscilla, make sure that you’ve completed any required smog testing to insure you’ll receive your Arizona license plate tags for 2023. If all your requirements and fees have been paid then you’ll need to reach out to the AZ DOT directly to inquire about the delay with your tags being mailed to you. It’s also important to note that processing and mailing you your Arizona vehicle registration renewal may take several weeks

    I have not received my invoice for new sticker for my license plate. it is normally due for December for the next year 2023.

    I bought a car here in Arizona 3 years ago, but couldn’t put it in my name because there was a hold on the title. A year later, the car was inadvertently impounded. The seller was notified, so then he got a fraudulent duplicate title and stole the car. It was reported to the police, but they won’t charge him since the title is in his name.

    I hired a private investigator who gave me a datasheet of license plate scans on the car. The car was sighted 297 times across the United States adding a lot of miles on my car!

    How can I get his title canceled and put it in my name so I can get the car declared stolen and listed on the National Stolen Car DataBase?

    You will want to visit the Arizona DOT office and fill out a vehicle transfer form and have the Arizona license plate number, registration or title if in possession as well as the Arizona death certificate. There is a precedence for this in Arizona so it should be fairly straight forward.

    How to Transfer a Car Title After Death

    1. Visit the Motor Vehicle office in person
    2. Fill out the vehicle transfer form
    3. Provide ID, title & death certificate
    4. Pay the relevant fees for a title transfer
    5. Receive an updated vehicle title by mail
