Driver Services

As Arizona continues to take proactive measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Governor Doug Ducey issued an Executive Order deferring requirements to renew standard driver licenses that have an expiration date between March 1, 2020, and February 28, 2021, by one year from their original expiration date. This action will minimize in-person visits to Arizona Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) Offices and help contain the spread of COVID-19. 

“We are working hard to ensure Arizona’s most vulnerable are kept safe during the pandemic,” said Governor Ducey. “The standard Arizona driver license expires when an individual turns 65, and renewing a driver license currently requires an in-office visit. Many older adults have been making safe choices and limiting trips outside their home — and today’s order supports those responsible decisions.”

Under this Executive Order, all Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training Board certified law enforcement officers as well as state government agencies, county and municipal governments, and election officials will accept Arizona driver license cards with expiration dates between March 1, 2020 and February 28, 2021, as valid identification for any purposes for which unexpired driver license cards would otherwise be accepted.

Any driver may see their updated driver license expiration date at AZMVDNow.gov. Drivers have the option to order a duplicate license with the updated expiration date.
