Displaying Your Plate  

It is unlawful to alter or modify an Arizona license plate. Your plate must be displayed on the rear of the vehicle with the following requirements: 

  • Must be displayed in a position so the license plate is clearly legible, securely attached to prevent swinging and at a height at least 12 inches from the ground to the bottom of the plate. The name of the state at the top of the plate cannot be obscured or covered. 
  • Temporary issued placards must also be displayed per the same requirements.
Plate Replacement

Arizona law requires a vehicle owner to replace any issued license plate that has become damaged, deteriorated, illegible or unreadable. This may be done at an MVD or Authorized Third Party office. One form of identification is required, and you must have the license plate and/or vehicle identification number. A $5 fee will be charged (plus postage and handling, if applicable). 

To transact by mail, send the plate application, with a check or money order for $5, plus postage and handling listed on the form.
