How To Get An Arizona Driver’s License

Hitting the open road is a wonderful privilege, but it’s not a given right.

In order to drive in Arizona, you’ll have to first pass a number of tests to prove you can handle the responsibility.

The process looks slightly different, depending on how old you are and the type of vehicle you want to drive. But below are the different ways to get your driver’s license in Arizona.

Graduated Driver’s License Program (Ages 15 ½-18)

The Arizona Motor Vehicles Division (MVD) uses something called a graduated driver’s license (GDL) system for first-time license applicants under 18 years old. This system slowly distributes driving capabilities over a period of time.

You can start the process once you turn 15 ½ years old by applying for an AZ learner’s permit.

Arizona Learner’s Permit

To get your learner’s permit, you’ll have to pass the written knowledge test, which can be taken either:

Either way, you’ll eventually have to go in to the MVD to finish the process. Schedule an appointment with your closest participating office and:

You’ll also need to have a parent, legal guardian, or certified driving instructor present in order to sign a consent form on your behalf.

Once all the above is complete, the state will issue you your learner’s permit. While driving under this credential, you must have a fully-licensed passenger who’s at least 21 years old in the front seat.

AZ Provisional License

The next step in the GDL process is getting your provisional (Class G) license.

In order to apply for this license, you must:

  • Practice on your learner’s permit for at least 6 months.

AND

  • Complete a driving log of 30 hours, with at least 10 hours at night.

OR

Once that’s finished, you’ll need to pass the driving skills test, which can be taken:

After successfully passing the test, you’ll have to return to the MVD and bring:

  • Your learner’s permit.
  • Your driving test results.
  • Proof of your:
    • Age.
    • Identity.
    • Arizona address.
    • Social Security number.
  • Your driving log OR completion certificate for your Driver’s Ed course.
  • The provisional license fee.

The state will then issue your Class G provisional license. Restrictions while driving on this license include:

  • Only one passenger under 18 years old, unless:
    • They are your siblings.
    • A parent or legal guardian is present in the vehicle.
  • No driving between midnight and 5 a.m. for the first six months, unless:
    • A fully licensed passenger age 21 or older is present.
    • You’re going to church, work, school, or driving for a family emergency.

Full Arizona Driver’s License

Once you turn 18, you’ll be eligible to apply for your full (Class D) Arizona license.

The process is simple and can be done online or by scheduling an appointment with the MVD.

If going in person, bring your:

At this point, all the remaining restrictions will be lifted from your license. Congratulations!

Arizona Driver’s License (Ages 18+)

If you’re applying for a first-time license in Arizona and you’re 18 or older, the process is a bit more streamlined.

Start by scheduling an appointment with the MVD to take your written knowledge test, and:

Once the above is complete, you’ll be issued your learner’s permit and be able to schedule your driving exam. There is no waiting period for this test if you’re 18 or older.

You can take your driving test either:

At that appointment, make sure to bring:

  • Your current, valid AZ learner’s permit.
  • Proof of your:
    • Identity and age.
    • Legal status in the United States.
    • Arizona address.
    • Social Security number.
  • The driver’s license fee.

After the fee is paid, the paperwork filed, and the test passed, the state will issue you your full (Class D) license. There are no restrictions on this credential.

Out-of-State License Transfers to Arizona

Welcome to Arizona!

The state requires you to apply for an AZ driver’s license once you’re officially considered an Arizona resident, which happens once you:

  • Work in Arizona.
    • Seasonal farm work not included.
  • Are registered to vote in AZ.
  • Have children that go to an Arizona school, with in-state tuition rates.
  • Have a business that operates, and operates vehicles, in Arizona.
  • Live in Arizona for 7 months or more in a calendar year, regardless of whether you claim AZ as your permanent residence.

At this point, you can transfer your out-of-state license by scheduling an appointment with the Motor Vehicle Division and:

Your AZ license must be renewed every 12 years until you turn 65, at which point it must be renewed every 5 years.

 

Arizona MVD Motorcycle Permit & License Info

Arizona Motorcycle License

Just like commercial or other vehicles, motorcycles in Arizona require a multi-step process to drive legally.

The first step is getting your motorcycle instruction permit, which you can apply for once you’re 15 ½ years old.

AZ Motorcycle Instruction Permit

To get your Arizona motorcycle permit, you’ll have to pass the motorcycle written test. If you’ve never held any kind of license before, you’ll also have to pass the state’s driver’s license written test.

To do so, schedule an appointment with the Division of Motor Vehicles, and:

Once the above is completed, you’ll be issued your AZ motorcycle permit. Restrictions on this credential include:

  • No driving with passengers.
  • No operating a motorcycle on freeways or interstate highways:
    • Between sunset and sunrise.
    • When there’s not enough light to see more than 500 feet.

If you’re under 18, you’ll need to practice on your permit for at least 6 months before you can take your road test. Otherwise, there is no waiting period.

Arizona Motorcycle License

The final step is applying for your AZ motorcycle license.

If you’re under 18, before you can apply, you’ll have to:

OR

  • Have a parent or guardian certify in writing that you’ve completed 30 hours of practice driving.

Otherwise, schedule an appointment with the MVD and bring:

  • Your current, valid motorcycle permit.
  • Your driver’s license, if applicable.
  • Proof of your:
    • Identity and age.
    • Legal presence in the U.S.
    • Social Security number.
    • Arizona address.
  • The motorcycle license fee.

The state issues a detailed form on the type of maneuvers you’ll be expected to perform on your test. After successfully passing, showing the appropriate documents and paying the fee, you’ll be issued your motorcycle license.

Arizona motorcycle licenses are valid until you turn 65, however you will have to update your photo and re-take the eye exam every 12 years.

Arizona CDL Requirements

Arizona Commercial Driver’s License (CDL)

The application process for a commercial driver’s license in Arizona is a bit more in-depth.

Before you can apply, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old.
    • Must be at least 21 to drive out of state.
  • Already have your Arizona license.

At that point, the next step is applying for your CDL instruction permit.

AZ CDL Instruction Permit

BEFORE you begin the process with the Arizona Motor Vehicles Division, you’ll have to successfully pass a medical exam from a certified doctor.

Once that’s complete, schedule an appointment with the MVD and bring:

  • Your AZ driver’s license.
  • Your medical clearance certificate.
  • Proof of your:
    • Identity and age.
    • Social Security number.
    • Legal status in the U.S.
  • The CDL instruction permit fee.

Motorcycles are not counted toward this.

  • Pass your written CDL exam.

When all the above is finished, the state will issue you your CDL instruction permit. This credential is valid for 6 months.

AZ Commercial Driver’s License

To turn your permit into a license, you’ll have to pass the driving skills test. You’ll have to practice on your instruction permit for at least 14 days before you can take the exam.

Schedule another appointment with the DVM and bring:

After the documents are checked, the fee paid, and the test passed, you’ll be issued your Arizona commercial driver’s license.
