More than 1.6 million customers currently get registration renewal updates and will also now periodically receive information about MVD service improvements. 

“In just the past few years, MVD has vastly increased the services available online and we need to take more steps to let people know about these innovations, so customers may occasionally get an informational email from MVD,” said Stakeholder Relations Manager Jennifer Bowser-Richards.

  • electronic title transfers,
  • updating insurance information,
  • creating personal AZ MVDNow accounts,
