Arizona motorists who’ve had their driver license suspended may now order a temporary six-month I.D. card online at ServiceArizona.com. Until now, this service required an in-person visit to an Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division office.
“People often need a valid I.D. in order to buy items at the store, go to the bank, and apply for a job among other things,” MVD Field Operations Administrator Mike Cryderman said. “When customers are faced with a suspended license, it makes having a temporary I.D. card vital.”
He added, “Offering this service more conveniently through ServiceArizona.com speeds up the process for these customers. It also has the effect of reducing customer traffic at MVD offices so we can better serve our customers who need to make an office visit.”
To get a temporary I.D. card, a customer must first have a suspended Arizona Driver License. The expiration date on the suspended license must be beyond the six months the temporary I.D. is valid. Also, the customer must already have an Arizona license photo that has been taken within the past 12 years on file with MVD in order for the temporary I.D. to be produced.

MESA — On May 9 at approximately 2:28 p.pm, Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) Sergeant Brandon Powell was westbound on US 60 near Lindsay Road in Mesa, when he observed a large SUV initiating a “traffic stop” on a passenger car. Sergeant Powell noticed the SUV had blue and red strobe lights and believed the SUV was an unmarked law enforcement vehicle.
Sergeant Powell stopped to assist and noticed the male driver of the SUV was already speaking with the female driver of the passenger car. He also noticed the driver did not have a firearm on his waist and was wearing a shirt embroidered with the letters, “MESA POLICE” on a gold badge.
Sergeant Powell began questioning the driver, now identified as 28-year-old Joshua Hillman, and determined he was not a law enforcement officer, nor was he affiliated with the Mesa Police Department. Hillman told Sergeant Powell he had stopped the passenger car because the vehicle had cut him off.
According to Hillman, he has utilized red and blue lights in the past when contacting stranded motorists. Hillman was arrested and booked into the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office 4th Avenue Jail for impersonating a police officer and three counts of kidnapping.
AZDPS investigators are asking the public to come forward if they have had police-type contact with Joshua Hillman.
