Arizona Drivers LicenseFor further protection, drivers who go into MVD to get a new license will leave with a temporary card. The permanent license will be mailed within 15 days. This new process starts June 16.

As part of the new central credential issuance process, a redesigned driver license and identification card is being introduced. The redesigned credential contains enhanced security features to safeguard personal information and help prevent identity theft. The complexity of the new credential, and the security features and processes in place, don’t make it feasible to produce the permanent credential in offices for same-day issuance.”–Stacey Stanton, ADOT Motor Vehicle Division Director

There’s no need to run out to get a new driver license if you already have one. A current driver license remains valid until its expiration date, or until the photo needs to be updated.

With the new central issuance process it is critical that customers keep their address updated with MVD.”–Stacey Stanton

State law requires that residents notify the Motor Vehicle Division of an address change within 10 days. Address changes can be made online at

Security features of the new Arizona driver license include:

  • Larger personal photo with smaller ghost portrait
  • High-security design with  unique Arizona geological features in background
  • Laser perforation in the shape of Arizona
  • Raised “date of birth” area that can be felt by touch
  • Tri-color Optically Variable Device–a laminate overlay
  •  A ringtail, the state mammal, featured in the design
