Driver License Reinstatement Update

Legislation passed in the 2021 legislative session reinstated the driving privileges of Arizona drivers whose licenses had been suspended or restricted exclusively for failure to pay civil traffic violations. Reinstatement of driver licenses occurred on Sept. 29, 2021, which was the effective date of this law. Reinstatement happened automatically and required no action on the part of the customer. Customers can check their driver license status online at azmvdnow.gov.

For questions related to paying civil traffic violations, use the contact information provided on the citation/ticket/fine received and contact the court, municipality, law enforcement agency or other entity that issued the violation.
