Bought a vehicle in late March. The temp tags expire in a couple days.

Are they taking walkins yet? Or call on the perpetual hold number?

Anyone else in the same boat?

Update: plates came today, 5.13, almost a week after temp tags expired.

Everything should be caught up. Haven’t heard of covid related delays for license plates.  Make an apt online, super easy.


But even better, i pay the extra 10 bux and go to
Third party Mvd! Worth every penny

Agreed that the third party provider is the only way to go.

They will probably need an appointment too.  Call first and make sure they can do what you need.

MVD fucked up many ORV renewals and you couldn't pay on line, shit would just error out.  When I went in to get it straightened out, the total was much less than what was emailed to me and I walked out with on and off road stickers.

Whomever decided to allow third-party MVD transactions deserves a goddamned medal. Not perfect, but leagues better than the real deal.

I'd contact the seller.  If a dealer they may be able to give you another plate.   You may also be able to go into a 3rd party place and get another temp tag.  When I had my title switched over, they(3rd party place) gave me a 1 year temp plate.  Luckily the title and new plate came in the mail in just a few weeks.

Update...

I worked today. The temp plates expire over the weekend. I got the OHV sticker in the mail today (dual sport motorcycle) still no plate. The tag that came has a 6 character plate listed on the little paper with letters and numbers. Service az says bike plates can have no more than 5 characters. The plate number on the OHV tag is not barn door close to the temp plate.


Looks like I'll have to get out early next week to unscrew this mess.

Truck we bought at end of Feb. just got tags 2 days ago. Temp plate expired April 27th. Sounds like they're still behind.

AAA will do this as well, as part of normal membership.

When my son registered his quad same deal sticker came first he had the temp paper plate.Think the real plate came about a week after the reg sticker came.

Do you know what the time between buying it and receiving plates was?

I got a couple days off next week. Will go to mvd then. In the mean time, it's easier to complain here.

And to the many folks who posted: I would use third party in a heartbeat if I could. I bought this from a dealer.

You'll want to call before going, at least a few months ago all the DMV services were suspended with AAA.

I had bought the quad in ca a while ago didnt renew there since i knew we were moving  was private party deal but think the sticker showed up about 2 weeks later then the plate another week or so.

I was thinking they screwed up since my truck came with both sons car same and the ohv came separate

3rd party mvd is also open on sat and sun
Link Posted: 5/18/2021 9:36:25 AM EDT
MVD is taking walk ins, however appointments have priority and walk ins are limited to whatever arbitrary occupancy limit they set.
And despite mask mandates being lifted across the state the local AJ one has a mask nazi running the counter.
Unfortunately for some things (purged titles) my local MVD is actually better then 3rd party.
