ADOT warns public of fraudulent websites

We've all got to be careful when it comes to online transactions and sometimes knowing what to watch out for is the key to keeping your information safe.

That’s why ADOT’s Motor Vehicle Division wants to alert customers that there are various Internet-based fraudulent schemes operating with the goal to illegally charge an individual’s credit card account for bogus driver license services.

These scam artists use the Internet to falsely advertise the ability to provide driver license services that in Arizona are ONLY available through

MVD wants everyone to know that Arizona driver license and vehicle title/registration transactions are conducted only through the following formats:

Beware of phony websites … is the only site a customer can use to conduct business for Arizona motor vehicle services, such as applying for a duplicate driver license, reinstatements, registration renewals, purchasing specialty license plates, or updating the mailing, residential or email address.

Arizona does not allow the issuance or renewal of a driver license via the Internet – an applicant must go to a local MVD or authorized third-party office.

ADOT strongly advises customers to stay away from any other websites that advertise the ability to conduct Arizona driver license services.
