Registration expiring

Quick question....I am active duty military on travel orders and in between assignments. My RV is registered in AZ and expires 15 Feb. I will be traveling to Florida around the 17th but can't get registration renewed because I need a emissions test and the RV isn't in AZ.
I have heard from some military friends that if I am on TDY orders they give an automatic 45 day extension if for some reason I was pulled over. Does anyone know if there is any truth behind that? I plan on getting the RV registered in Florida the day I get there.
Thanks in advance!

You might get real lucky and get an answer from DMV. Maybe a temporary paper plate?

Arizona provides the following for military personnel:
Special Military Exemption This exemption allows for the renewal of a vehicle registration for one year without payment of the vehicle license tax and registration fees. There a two eligibility types.
Current or former member of the:
  • US Armed Forces regular component, reserve component or National Guard, who served on active military duty outside of Arizona in support of a worldwide contingency operation of the US Armed Forces, and who is an Arizona resident and the owner/lessee of the vehicle
  • If you own a vehicle that is located out of state at the time of registration renewal and is required to be emissions tested, you may apply for an out-of-state emissions exemption from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality.
If a vehicle registration expires and the vehicle is not being driven or is in storage, a Registration Penalty Fee Waiver, Non-Use may be signed at the time of registration to waive the late registration penalties.

Go to thier website here:
Motor Vehicle Division

Hope this helps and Thanks for Your Service....

Many states now allow renewal on the Internet.

Hooligan answered your question, but there are some things you might want to consider reference changing over your registration. As an active duty servicemember you can keep your vehicles registered in your home state no matter where you are stationed. Or you can register a vehicle in the state you happen to be in (while keeping your original drivers license). I did it both ways while I was in the service. The problem that you run into doing that is that when switching vehicle registrations around states, there are sometimes hefty fees to transfer. If you are an Arizona resident, and switch the RV to Florida while you are stationed there, and then are stationed elsewhere and register there, then return to Arizona, you could end up with a bunch of fees to do all the transfers.

Thanks for your service and best of luck in your travels.

Along with gray ghost's info. Military personnel are given some leeway vehicle registration and licensing, but two of three items must be the same to be legal....
The State you are in, The state your vehicle is registered in and the State that issued your Driver's license.

Of course we welcome new residents to Florida, good home of record, and no State income tax.

Hooligans solution sounds like the best option but you can also check with AZ DMV to see if you can get an inspection done in Florida (some states do allow out-of-state inspection although I suspect most probably don't).

Hooligan, you having the POV registered in Idaho, Texas DL, and proof of insurance with Florida address will get me in trouble? It didn't last November, and the LEO even let me go with a warning! (Not so lucky in Al, 64/45 is ~$230)

MrJim: Years ago, I had that discussion with one of NYC's finest, I had Florida tags, Md Driver's license and was in NYC. He said I was only legal in Md and FL. Since I was in uniform, let me go with "Get it Fixed and slow down".

These requirements come from the "Soldier and Sailors Relief Act" which prevents a State you are stationed in from requiring registration/tag and license fees if they are not your home state.
