Updated on January 18th, 2021

The Arizona DMV bill of sale form is a legal document that provides proof of purchase. Although not required by law in the state of Arizona, it can still be a very useful document in terms of protection. The form requires such information as the VIN number, selling price/date, seller’s signature, along with a notarized section. Once the form has been completed and notarized, a copy may be provided to both parties.

How to Register a Vehicle

You are not allowed to drive your recently purchased vehicle until it has been registered. If you need to drive the vehicle prior to registration, you can purchase a 3-day permit for a small fee by visiting the ServiceArizona website.

  • A valid photo I.D.
