PHOENIX — Arizona’s Motor Vehicle Division on Monday announced a new way customers can renew their vehicle registration.

Motorists can now renew their vehicle registration in Arizona at a grocery or convenience store via CheckFreePay.

CheckFreePay — which charges a $3 convenience fee per transaction — has over 500 locations statewide, more than 100 of which can be found outside of the Phoenix and Tucson metro areas.

Most locations are in grocery and convenience stores, and will allow cash payments for vehicle registration renewals.

Customers will have to provide the last two numbers of their vehicle’s VIN and record number, which will update instantly in MVD’s system upon completion and send the new vehicle registration tabs in the mail.

“We’re constantly looking for solutions that give customers more options to complete transactions with MVD at their convenience,” MVD Director Eric Jorgensen said in a press release.

“CheckFreePay is another convenient, easy way to renew a registration that some customers will appreciate.”

Walmart will begin accepting registration renewal payments in early 2021, according to the release.

Over 1.5 million registration renewal transactions were processed in 2019 at in-person locations, which include MVD offices, kiosks or authorized third-party offices, according to the release.
