Arizona Driver License Laws
In Arizona, per state statute, you must carry some form of identification on you at all times. This form of ID can be: a drivers license, learners permit, or a state identification (ID) card. All three of these forms of identification are issued by the Arizona Motor Vehicle Division (AZ MVD).
An ID card can be issued to any person of any age, including infants, for a $12 fee. If you are 65 years of age or older, or receive federal Supplemental Security Income disability payments, this fee is waived. ID cards do not expire, unless they have been issued in lieu of a suspended driver's license. You cannot hold both an Arizona ID card and a valid driver's license, at the same time. To obtain your Arizona AD, you must bring two forms of identification, one of which must have a photo, or three forms of non-photo identification, as well as a completed Driver License/Identification Card Application. Minors, or those who are not able to sign for themselves, must have a parent or legal guardian sign their application for them.
For drivers who have just moved to Arizona, all new residents of Arizona who plan to operate a motor vehicle in this state must obtain a driver license within 30 days of establishing a permanent residence, at one of the MVD's Customer Service Centers. For drivers who are licensed in another state currently, or whose license has expired in less than two years, you are only required to take a vision exam. However, if your license has expired more than two years ago, you must take a written, road skills and vision test to obtain your license in Arizona.
