Scam artists target motorists

ARIZONA

Scam artists are trying to cash in on residents renewing their driver's license. The Motor Vehicle Division of the Arizona Department of Transportation is warning residents of a potential internet scam illegally charging people's credit card accounts for bogus driver's licenses.

Duplicate Arizona driver's license, reinstatements, registration renewals, purchasing specialty license plates, or updating the mailing, residential or email address can only be applied for by visiting a MVD office, an ADOT authorized third-party office, by mail or online through servicearizona.com.

Arizona does not allow the issuance or renewal of a driver license via the internet - an applicant must go to a local MVD or authorized third-party office.
