Central Credential Issuance

For Your Safety and Security

The Arizona Department of Transportation has begun a new process for issuing Arizona driver licenses and identification cards.

Customers purchasing a new or duplicate driver license, identification card or instruction permit at MVD or authorized third party office will receive their credential in the mail at the address listed on their application. Customers should allow up to 15 days to receive it in the mail.

A temporary credential with the cardholder's photo will be issued at the time of a visit to an MVD or authorized third party office.

There is no need to update a current license or ID to the new design. Valid credentials do not need replacement until they expire or require a photo update. Customers can still order duplicate credentials online at Existing fees remain in place.
