If available I am also looking for:

-The City and County where the applicants vehicle would be registered.

I am NOT looking for any personal identifiable information such as first and last name, street number, street name.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

If you deny any or all of this request, please cite each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law.

A list of all personalized license plate number applications that were rejected for the year 2013.


- Attached is a list of MVD prohibited vehicle license plates. This report is maintained in the normal course of business by the Arizona Department of Transportation. We do not have a report specifically for the year 2013 for prohibited vehicle license plates.

The attached is responsive to your request for the best of my information and concludes my response. The Arizona Department of Transportation does not waive fees statutorily authorized by Arizona Revised Statutes Sec. 39-121, however, based on the limited number of record pages incurred with this request, no invoice will be generated at this time.
