Is Your Car a Classic or Historic?

What kind of car do you have – “historic” or “classic”?

You’ve owned it forever or you’re eyeing it online or at a car show — one of the great muscle cars of the 60s and 70s or a real vintage beauty from the 40s.The State of Arizona MVD has 3 classic and historic specialty license plates, each for a different type of vehicle.

AZ Classic car lic. plateAZ Historic Vehicle lic. plateAZ Horseless Carriage tag

To qualify as a “Classic Car,” it must be on the “Approved Classics” list of The Classic Car Club of America. The club defines a car a classic as a “‘Fine’ or ‘Distinctive’ automobile, American or foreign built, produced between 1925 and 1948.” The 1940s Wolseley pictured above is a great example.

A “Historic Vehicle” is at least 25 years old. The classic 1960 Chevy El Camino shown above is a perfect example. Though it may be called a “classic,” as many muscle cars are, in AZ, it’s considered a “Historic Vehicle.” Note: the 25 year or older rule may not apply to your vehicle.*

1915 Ford Model “T”

Now, a “Horseless Carriage” is a vehicle that was made in 1915 or older like the 1915 Ford Model “T” on the right.

Another thing you need to know before applying for one of the classic or historic tags, is that your insurance company MUST insure it properly as a classic vehicle to be exempt from an emissions test and must have a letter from the Insurance company saying they meet AZ requirements for collectible insurance.


Classic cars are not meant to be driven on the street regularly except to go to a car show. *If your car is around the 25 year old mark, you need to contact your insurance company to make sure it qualifies as a historic vehicle.

Please give us a call and we can help you with any questions about collectible vehicles and their proper registration.

AZ Plate Helps Homeless Women Vets

You wouldn’t think it, but the statistics are staggering.

Women veterans are 4 times more likely to become homeless than their male veteran counterparts and non-veteran women. ~American Journal of Public Health

They’re not your typical homeless person. Their needs are different. Besides PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), most also suffered sexual harassment, if not abuse and many of them are moms, some single parents. The VA has had to make major adjustments to help these women.

Your family wants the person back that they sent off to war. They’ll never get that person back.

In this other video from the Military News Channel, shows what women vets returning from service abroad are going through in trying to get back into civilian life.

You can help female Veterans of Arizona by purchasing the new Women Veterans license plate. It’s available to anyone and can be personalized (maximum of 6 characters).

$25 initial application fee/ $25 annual renewal. $17 goes to a special account in the Arizona Veterans’ Donation Fund to assist homeless women veterans. Please call us at Prompt Titles & Registrations so we can order your plate. 602-957-0450. ($5 convenience fee applies – void with a Military ID.)

Also available with a disability symbol,  ask about it when you call.

Check out the AZ Centennial Plate!

On Feb. 14, 2012, Arizona marked its 100th birthday and to celebrate it, issued the Centennial License Plate.

You can get yours at either of the Prompt Titles and Registrations locations.

Can I personalize my special license plate? 

Yes, the license plate is available both as a non-personalized and as a personalized plate where you choose the letter/number combination that will appear on your plate. The maximum number of characters allowed for a personalized (letters and/or numbers) license plate is seven. Plates with the disability symbol are limited to six characters. We’ll need to check the availability of your personalized plate idea online at before placing your order. All personalized plate choices must be approved by ADOT.

How much does it cost?

The cost of the license plate is $25 for the initial application fee and $25 per annual renewal. Personalized plates have an additional $25 fee (for a total of $50 annually).

When is my annual license plate renewal fee due? 

Your license plate renewal fee is due each year at the same time as your vehicle registration. A special plate can be ordered at any time with the initial fees due at the time of ordering. The annual fee would be due at the regular time of renewal. If your registration expires within the next three months, you have the option to renew your registration early before submitting the license plate application in order to avoid the first annual renewal special plate fee.

Your vehicle must be registered in the State of Arizona to obtain a specialty tag. It can also be purchased as a gift as long as the vehicle is registered in AZ.  The centennial tag is not available for motorcycles or golf carts.
