Did you know that the Arizona Department of Transportation authorizes third-party providers to handle certain DMV services in Phoenix and other major cities throughout the state?

This is great because if you’ve ever needed to take care of some DMV business in Phoenix, you know that the process can be pretty daunting. You have to wait in line and fill out forms, and it’s generally a big hassle.

It also means that if you’re looking to get your driver’s license or registration renewal without having to go to the DMV then you’re in luck. These third-party driver services in Phoenix make it simple to take care of tasks such as registration renewal and OHV decals.

If you’re looking for an easy and convenient way to take care of your DMV needs, then check out one of the third-party services listed below. These services offer all the same benefits as the official DMV locations, but with a lot more convenience and ease of use.

What Are Third-Party Driver Services in Phoenix?

Third-party driver services in Phoenix are third-party companies that offer services you might typically visit the DMV for. This includes:

  • Vehicle title transfers
  • License plate replacement
  • Motor vehicle registration
  • Duplicate titles
  • Notary
  • Permits

These companies usually have a physical location, such as a storefront or office, where they can assist customers in person. For example, at GG&D, we have six physical locations across the Phoenix Metroplex.

In general, third-party driver services provide a convenient way for people to complete DMV-related tasks without going to a DMV office. These companies typically charge a fee for their services, but the price is often lower than the fees charged by the MVD. As a result, third-party driver services can save you time and money.

In need of assistance with your Phoenix driving services and related DMV tasks? Here are some of the most common types of driving services we offer.

Title Transfer Services

The title transfer process involves an inspection of the vehicle to make sure it is roadworthy, as well as a review of the title to ensure there are no outstanding liens or encumbrances. You can do this through your local DMV office, but at GG&D, we offer title transfer services and can handle the paperwork for you.

Registration Renewal Services

Registration renewal services are a great way to stay on top of your registration renewals. We offer a variety of services that can help you with everything from renewing your registration to getting new registration information. We can even help you transfer your registration to a new state if you move.

Reinstate Suspended Registration Services

If you’re looking to reinstate your vehicle registration, GG&D is the place to go. All you need is to visit one of our locations with proof of Arizona auto insurance and cash for the reinstatement fee. Once we have all that, we’ll take care of reactivating your plates and registration so you can get back on the road.

Lost/Stolen Plates Services

It’s important (and mandatory in Arizona) to report any lost or stolen plates to the authorities as soon as possible. At GG&D, we make the process as simple as possible, though. Simply visit your nearest GG&D location with a photo ID and the fee and receive a temporary license plate while you wait for your new ones in the mail.

Temporary Permit Services

Looking to operate an unregistered vehicle in Arizona temporarily? You’ll need a three-day restricted use permit. This temporary permit allows you to drive an unregistered vehicle so you can take it to a location nearby for testing or inspection.

Tow & Salvage Inspection Services

Salvage vehicle inspection is the process of inspecting a salvage vehicle to assess its roadworthiness and determine if it is safe to operate. At GG&D, we can help with Level I and abandoned vehicle inspections at a tow yard. We also offer off-site inspection services if you schedule them beforehand.

Level 1 Inspection Services

Level 1 inspections are typically required when a vehicle doesn’t currently have proof of a title or current registration. The inspection verifies the VIN of the vehicle to make sure it is correctly entered into the state’s system. This is important because it helps to prevent fraud and ensure that the vehicle is properly registered.

Abandoned Vehicle Services

Need help verifying a vehicle’s status as an abandoned car? This is one of the best driving services for you. A third-party driver service can come out, perform an inspection, process as much information as they’re able to, and help you understand your options for registration or obtaining an abandoned vehicle title.

OHV Decals

OHV decals are required in some states for certain types of vehicles, including those that are used for off-highway recreation (for example, four-wheelers or dirt bikes).

Many people choose to use third-party driving service options to help them obtain OHV decals because these services are typically faster and more convenient than going to the DMV in person. Simply provide your vehicle information and payment, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Trailer VIN Assignment

If you have a homemade trailer in Arizona you need to obtain a serial number in place of a VIN. The same goes for trailers that once had a VIN that has now been removed or destroyed to the point where it’s illegible. We can help you obtain this number, which is used to identify the trailer and helps to track it in case of theft or other problems.

Watercraft Registration Services

If you live in Arizona and own a watercraft, you’ll need to register it with the state. Watercraft registration services are available through GG&D and the process is relatively simple and can be done at our Bell Rd and Cave Creek location. You’ll need to provide some basic information about your watercraft, including:

  • Certificate number
  • AZ number
  • Decals

Registration fees vary depending on the type and length of the watercraft. Be sure to renew your registration annually with GG&D to avoid any penalties!
