Choose Life Plates FAQ


What if I don’t renew my plates on-line? If you typically renew by mail or by visiting the closest MVD office, you can just go to your local MVD office and order your plates there! Ask for and fill out a Special Plate Application form and they can order Choose Life Special Plates over the counter. The plates are not stocked at MVD offices. Instead, the plate is entered into the system by the Customer Service Representative and is mailed from the Special Plate Office the next day.

How much does the Choose Life license plate cost? $25.00 fee (payable to the Motor Vehicle Division) and $25 per year in future renewal years. $17 is donated to the ALC for providing life-affirming hope and resources to the women, men and children of Arizona through truthful and loving education, services, and public policy. The MVD retains $8 for license plate administration. There also may be a nominal charge for mailing expenses.
