ADOT announces online preparation to save time 'Be Prepared' | News
The Arizona Department of Transportation is announcing a new way to apply for a drivers license in Arizona. This new process is called "Be-Prepared" and will be for use by operator, commercial driver and motorcycle license, instruction permit or identification card.
By using the ADOT MVD website and clicking on the “Apply Here” icon, an applicant for a driver license or identification card can complete a packet online which will save time for the overall processing of the application. The “Be Prepared” feature also has a checklist of the identification documents that will be needed to satisfy Arizona’s authorized-presence requirement.
Once the online application process is completed it is sent electronically over a secure connection and stored at MVD. It will be available when the applicant visits the office to complete the transaction. The applicant should make sure to click the “Application Package” button in order to print the confirmation pages containing the barcode. The printed barcode will allow MVD staff to retrieve your online application. The confirmation pages need to be brought to the MVD office along with the required primary and secondary identification documents. The applicant must pay the appropriate fee and may be required to take the written or road skills test, as well.
Some tips for faster service in addition to utilizing the online application:
- Usually the least busiest time to transact business at an MVD office is 8:30-10:30 most mornings
- The vehicle registration renewal deadlines are the 15th and the last day of the month which typically are the busiest days
- If you have an out-of-state driver license or identification card, bring it with you
