Driver Agent Serial Number
If you transfer a vehicle that has a prior P&G certificate, you will need an entirely new P&G certificate number that includes the new transfer documents. The transfer documents must be original, valid, and have a dealer’s P&G number on the front page. If the dealer’s P&G number is not on the certificate, make sure the number is added. Information about the bill of sale must be legible, must include the dealer’s name and the purchase date, and must be made out to the owner of the vehicle. When the vehicle is sold, the new seller must transfer the vehicle back to the original dealer for the bill of sale to be validated.
The vehicle’s information on the certificate includes the current Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and the plate number. The plate number must match the VIN (as shown on the P&G certificate), the vehicle’s original plate, and the plate number on the bill of sale. Failure to comply will result in the invalidation of the P&G number and may cause the certificate to be canceled.
If the vehicle’s Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) has been changed, you must have a new P&G certificate to reflect the new VIN. If the owner’s VIN on the P&G certificate is not the same as the VIN on the vehicle’s title, a vehicle title transfer will not be approved.
Your P&G number expires on January 15 following the year in which it was issued. To renew your P&G number, you must submit at least a $50 fee. The fee may be paid by check, cash, credit card or wire transfer. To renew using a credit card, you need to have a P&G number.
Your P&G number is only valid for the vehicle described on the title. A VIN change is considered a change in ownership and is handled differently. For a VIN change, the following documents are required:
Generally, requirements for a ‘Motorized Vehicle Identification Number’ (often called a Vehicle Identification Number or VIN) are: There must be one and only one unique number associated with the vehicle. It must appear on the vehicle’s Certificate of Title. The VIN cannot be altered. The VIN must be visible. The VIN cannot be removed, tampered with or painted over in any way. There must be a readily accessible VIN. The VIN must not be used as a single number for any other portion of the vehicle.
If eligible, you can obtain and print a record online at azmvdnow.gov.You may also obtain a copy by completing a Motor Vehicle Record Request form and submitting $3 for an uncertified record (three-year driving record) or $5 for a certified record (five-year driving record) by mail or at any MVD or authorized third-party office. Your signature on the form must be notarized or witnessed by an MVD agent.
Receipts for parts must be original and must be made out to the vehicle owner, immediate family member or body shop that repaired the vehicle. If not, then a notarized bill-of-sale from the individual on the receipt qualifies or, in the case of a licensed business, a letterhead statement of transfer for the parts.(Receipts must be legible and must include the invoice date, invoice number, business address, and stock number or VIN used as parts donor vehicle).
