30 day general use permits

Who can obtain a 30-Day General Use Permit?

The current vehicle owner while arranging for one of the following:

  • The sale of their existing vehicle after the license plate/credit is transferred to a newly acquired vehicle; or

  • Repairs needed for the vehicle to pass an emissions test.

NOTE: If the vehicle is sold, the new owner must obtain registration in the new owner’s name and transfer the title within fifteen (15) calendar days from the date of sale.

What do I need to have in order to obtain a 30-Day General Use Permit?

  • Ownership documents – i.e. a properly notarized title transfer bill of sale, or a properly notarized title. These requirements do not apply if the person applying for the permit is the current owner of the vehicle in ADOT’s system. 

  • Customer Information (the most current driver license/customer number).

  • Insurance on the vehicle for the duration of the permit.

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?

  • Your 30 Day General Use Permit comes with an attached registration slip. The PVC paper is perforated, making it easy to remove. Take care, however, that you do not tear your permit! The registration must be carried in the vehicle until it reaches its expiration date.
