3 Things you need to know when selling a car in AZ

For Sale signIf you’re selling, have sold or plan to sell a vehicle or transfer ownership somehow in Arizona, here are a few things you need to know:

  1. You must complete a “Sold Notice” – this protects you from any liability for accidents, tickets, etc. that may occur after the sale.
  2. You must also complete the transfer information on the back of the Certificate of Title and give it to the new owner.
  • Make sure it’s a “clean” title and there aren’t any liens on it.
  • If the title is missing or lost, you can bring it to any of our offices and we’ll do a title inspection.
  • Remove the license plate from the vehicle and keep it. You are responsible for that plate. If something happens to the vehicle after the sale like being involved in a crime or left abandoned, you’ll be responsible. Depending on when you registered the vehicle, you may qualify for a credit or refund. Visit one of our offices.

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.
