In Arizona, you must renew your vehicle registration before it expires to avoid late fees and tickets. Arizona vehicle registrations can last one, two or five years at a time. You can renew your vehicle registration up to six months before it expires if it does not require emissions testing. If emissions testing is required, you can renew your registration up to three months before it expires, as long as your vehicle can pass the emissions test. You can renew a vehicle registration online, by phone, by mail or in person depending on your circumstances. However, the quickest and easiest way to complete the renewal is online.
Did you know? You are charged a late fee if you renew your registration after it expires. The fee gets larger for every month past the expiration date that you fail to renew your registration.
