You can write off most of the cost of your plates - it is considered a property tax and is is tax deductible.

Nice! They not only price by year but by "list price" of the vehicle. So a 2006 Honda Accord will be much less expensive to register than a 2006 BMW 535i.

I registered my cars in AZ about two mos. after I moved here. Never had a problem with the police. However, I was just looking into getting a hunting license and their website says you're not considered a resident until you've lived here for six mos. (I think that means six mos. from the date of issue of my AZ drivers license!) and thus would have to pay about 4x the fee for a non-resident hunting license. WTF?

I have an AZ drivers license, CCW and four vehicles with AZ tags that I paid plenty to register AND I'm voting in the primary tomorrow and in the general in November. Believe me, I feel like an AZ resident, will be applying for an in-state hunting license and put up a stink if I'm told I can't.

That's a private/public partnership site with DMV and IBM (used to be anyway) to be the focal point for internet customers of drivers licenses and vehicle registrations. So it is really part of the DMV. It is advertised frequently on the TV and most people here know about it. I'd like to see boat and hunting and fishing licenses on there too, but that is a different department.

also... a new law just passed for the new year about license plate covers,....
repost from other forum....
The following is the result of changes to Arizona law effective January 01, 2009


License Plate Holder Law - State law* requires that the state name at the top of Arizona license plates must be visible. Any license plate holder or cover that prevents the license plate from being clearly legible, is in violation of this new law. * A.R.S. 28-2354(B.) Everyone please read carefully! This new law takes effect Jan 1, 2009. Please understand you can have a license plate frame holder as long as it doesn't cover the name Arizona on the top your license plate, if the license plate frame holder covers the name Arizona, you'll receive a $130.00 ticket!


This is your responsibility as privileged Arizona drivers to know new motor vehicle laws - the state doesn't send out mailings. For more info on new motor vehicle laws click on the link below. So if you have a frame holder that covers the name Arizona on your license plate, remove it before Jan 1, 2009 and replace it with one that doesn't cover the name Arizona.Motor Vehicle Division This has been verified.


..... And if you look around you will find 90% of vehicles that have license plate covers will now be illegal. If you have a few cocktails and drive, then remove your license plate frame, because these laws are ONLY enacted to have the right to pull you over which then they can check for DUI, warrants and anything else. The colors alone of the Arizona plate can tell an officer that the plate is indeed Arizona. while driving in the next few days just take note on how many cars license plate frames cover the word Arizona at the top, so again, this is just a means of being in the right to pull someone over. I would be willing to bet not one officer will issue a $130 ticket for this offense.

The fine used to be around $400 for people who didn't register their vehicles in Arizona but resided here. I'd suggest checking into it before running the risk. Government agencies have been known to police their own employee parking lots for expired or out of state tags and have authorities ticket the offenders on site.
BTW...my 2003 PT Cruiser still cost $133 to renew for one year.
