After You Close Your Arizona Home – Updating Your Information with the DMV

According to Arizona Revised Statute 28-448 a person is required to notify the Arizona Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) within 10 days (calendar days, not business days) of an address or name change.  A violation of this is considered a civil traffic violation.  At the very least a civil traffic violation could be a hassle to get removed or could cost you a lovely Saturday in traffic school or up to a $250 fine.

There are several acceptable ways to notify the DMV of your address change.  You can do it the traditional ways by driving down to your closest DMV office, calling or mailing in your current information.  The easiest way to update your current address with the Arizona DMV is to go to their website  ServiceArizona.com

In addition to keeping your Driver’s Licence up to date, you can change your voter registration, renew your vehicle tags, obtain a duplicate Drivers License to be mailed to you, select and order personalized or speciality license plates, check on a license plate credit, obtain a ‘sold notice’ for a recently sold vechile, obtain a vehicle tab replacement and more.

I know there is a lot to think of when your are in the process of moving that is why I send all my clients an email with this link and many other useful information to make getting  their new home established as easy as possible.
