Private DMVs Spring Up in Arizona

Private DMVs Spring Up in Arizona

Arizona joins a growing list of other states in┬ámaking driver’s licenses available at privately owned businesses. The new offices across Arizona are part of an effort by the Arizona Department of Transportation to privatize some of its services. The move brings to 14 the number of private DMVs operating in Arizona now. These businesses offer many of the same services as the state, but often at two to five times the price. In neighboring California, more than 1800 private businesses are authorized to provide private DMV services.
