Authorization Information

Criminal Records Check

Each partner and each applicant who owns 20 percent or more of an entity and who seeks a new license must provide a personal history form and fingerprint card to enable the Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) to conduct a criminal records check.

The criminal records check may not apply if the application is for a subsequent certification, or each partner and each applicant owning 20 percent or more of an entity has completed a criminal records check through MVD, or is currently certified.

An applicant, as referenced above, who has been convicted of fraud or an auto-related felony within the last ten years or any other type of felony within the last five years will have his or her license application denied.

If application is denied, MVD will notify the applicant in writing of the denial and the grounds for the denial. The applicant may appeal the denial by requesting an administrative hearing and, if the denial is upheld, appeal to the Maricopa County Superior Court. See ARS 28-4365 for more information.
