Pursuant to Arizona law (A.R.S. 28-2533), it is illegal for non-Arizona residents living in the state to drive without an Arizona-issued driver license and registration. However, Arizona does not require military members and non-resident military spouses to obtain an Arizona driver license or registration.
In the event you are subject to a traffic stop, it is a good idea to keep a copy of the legal letter found on the www.dm.af.mil websiteÂ and a picture ID with your vehicle registration and insurance documents. For further questions about residency issues, contact the Legal Office at 228-5242.
