The U.S. province of Arizona initially required its inhabitants to enlist their engine vehicles in 1912. Registrants needed to give their own tags to show until 1914 when the state started to supply plates. Plates are at present issued by the Motor Vehicle Division of the Arizona Department of Transportation (MVD).
Plates were issued to all vehicle sorts until 1929 when business vehicles were given their own class of plate. County codes were utilized from 1922 through 1958, while the present “Fabulous Canyon State” trademark initially showed up in 1940, showing up on every ensuing issue with the exception of 1945.
In 1956, the U.S. states and Canadian areas went to a concurrence with the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, the Automobile Manufacturers Association and the National Safety Council that institutionalized the size for tags for vehicles (aside from those for cruisers) at 6 inches (15 cm) in stature by 12 inches (30 cm) in width, with institutionalized mounting holes.
In Arizona, the tag has a place with the vehicle proprietor. This takes into account the exchange of a tag from one vehicle to another.
As of FY 2009, the MVD has 6,693,413 tags enrolled with the department.
