A reprint of the Confirmation/Receipt for your online Tab Replacement transaction can be obtained up to 14 days from the date of your online Tab Replacement transaction. Click here here to reprint your confirmation/receipt.

If you have your vehicle registration form and your address information on the form matches your current address, your address is correct.

If you do not have your vehicle registration form, or the address information shown on the form is not correct, you will need to complete a change of address. Click here to change your address.

MVD has developed a computer system that links all of your records together. This means that when you change your address on your vehicle registration, it will automatically change the address on each vehicle on which you are listed as the registration recipient and on your driver license. Registration recipient is defined as the vehicle owner or registrant who is designated on the MVD database to receive the registration for a vehicle. To change your address, you will need your name, date of birth, and driver license or identification card number.

The Federal Driver's Privacy Protection Act 18 U.S.C. 2721-2725, as well as Title 28, Chapter 2, Article 5 of the Arizona Revised Statutes, specifies that the personal information contained in your vehicle record may not be released to anyone without your consent, except when it is a matter of public health and safety, or when the individual or entity requesting such information is otherwise authorized to obtain it under federal law. However, during the replacement tab process, you may consent to the release of your driver license and vehicle record information to any individual or entity that makes a proper request. This consent would apply to all owners of this vehicle.

You may pay with credit/debit/check cards. Check cards are linked to checking accounts and are accepted anywhere credit cards are accepted. Debit/Check card purchases are automatically deducted from the linked checking account.

In addition, some Kiosks are equipped with cash and check acceptors.
