Motorcycle Registration in Arizona

Registering your motorcycle is basically the same as registering your car or truck in Arizona. What will probably vary are the fees.

The title fee is flat and minimal. The registration fee, too, is minor, as is the air quality research fee.

The variable fee comes in the form of the vehicle license tax (VLT), which is assessed instead of the personal property tax that many other states charge. It is based on the manufacturer's base retail price of the automobile, but takes into account amortization, so you will pay a little less to register your vehicle each year.

To calculate the VLT, the MVD will take 60% of that value and reduce it 16.25% for each year that the vehicle has been registered in Arizona.

Mobile home owners pay a title fee of $7 alone.

Emissions Testing

All motorcycles are exempt from emissions testing.

Renewing Your Registration

Renewing your car or motorcycle can seem like a bother, but the Arizona MVD makes it simple, assuming you have your address and plate number in front of you. The online system is identical for all automobiles and takes just a few minutes―as well as a major credit card.
