It was the easiest process I've seen!

After the initial Driver's License and Vehicle Registration transactions, most everything else can be done online and rarely requires a return visit, however, when a trip to the MVD is necessary in the future, packing a lunch and a supply of valiums are definitely not required.

Good Luck

No test required! As long as your current out of state licence is up to date, then there's no test, it's simply a matter of trading one in for the other.

No tests or anything. It was very easy.
My Arizona drivers license is good until 2028.
Gotta love Arizona.
LOL! Yeah I kept my old one too and they just punched a hole in it and let me keep it. They ask if you want to keep it or just have them throw it away. I decided to keep it for memory purposes.

Yes that really shocked me when I first saw the date! I thought it was a typo or mistake. Hahah! In Ohio mine had to be renewed every 4 yrs.

I'd like to second (third?) the comments that the AZ DMV is very user friendly. I've registered two cars there (I do a long term rental in the state) as well as gotten an AZ ID card (not a DL, but looks like it and is useful for some things in the state). Very helpful and friendly folks. This was in Green Valley, just south of Tucson.

I think you should concern this with your closest DMV.

The OP's closest DMV is in California, not Arizona.
