What do I need to have in order to obtain a 30-Day General Use Permit?
- Vehicle Information (vehicle ID number (VIN)).
- Customer Information (the most current driver license/customer number). NOTE: A customer number can be an individual number or an organization number. An individual customer number is your Arizona issued driver license or identification (ID) number, or Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) system assigned number. An organization customer number (business, trust, estate or government) is its Employer Identification Number (EIN) or Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) system assigned number.

How many 30-Day General Use Permits can I get?
- Only one permit is allowed per vehicle within any twelve-month period.
How is the 30-Day General Use Permit displayed?
- The 30-Day General Use Permit, which is the top half of the form, must be displayed horizontally in the lower right corner of the rear window so that it is clearly visible from outside the vehicle. The registration, the bottom half of the form, is to be carried in the vehicle.
What do I carry in the vehicle for proof of registration?
- When the 30-Day General Use Permit is printed, you will need to cut along the dotted line where specified to separate the 30-Day General Use Permit (top half of form) from the registration (bottom half of form). Tearing may destroy the permit. The registration needs to be carried in the vehicle until it is expired or replaced.
