When you turn 18, you may continue to use your Class G graduated driver license. However, you will be eligible to obtain a replacement license reflecting a Class D operator status that still retains the special vertical orientation that indicates you are under 21. To obtain a license reflecting a Class D operator status after you turn 18, please visit ServiceArizona.com to replace your current license. 

When you turn 21, you may continue to use your driver license or identification card with the special vertical orientation. However, you are eligible to obtain a replacement license with the regular horizontal orientation without the under-21 designation. To obtain a license with horizontal orientation after you turn 21, please visit ServiceArizona.com to replace your current license. 

Note: Fees apply for replacement licenses.
