This will not work. The applicant must provide a utility bill in the owner's name at that address, a lease, or rental agreement to residential property that shows the registered owner's occupancy of that property to AZDOT/MVD and AZDEQ. It is a criminal offense to do what you suggest.
ADEQ: Air Quality Division: Vehicle Emissions: Exemptions from Testing
Air Quality Division: Vehicle Emissions: Exemptions from Testing Military Out of State Exemption
If you are active duty military, stationed outside of Arizona, you may qualify for a military out of state exemption. This exemption is for vehicles that will not be in use. If the vehicle is to be driven by someone else, use the regular Out of State exemption.
To apply, you must complete and sign the application form below and obtain your Commanding Officer's signature. Application must be made within 90 days prior to expiration of the current vehicle registration.
New Vehicle Exemption
Arizona exempts from emissions testing most vehicles of the newest five model years. In 2012, most 2008 and newer model year motor vehicles (except reconstructed vehicles) do not require an emissions test.
Vehicles Registered Outside of the Vehicle Emissions Control Areas (metro Phoenix and Tucson) in Partially Exempt Zip Codes
The Motor Vehicle Division exempts most vehicles registered outside the vehicle emissions control area based on the residence zip code. However, the zip codes listed below* are considered partial, meaning parts of the area require emissions and some parts are exempt.
*Partial Zip Codes in the Vehicle Emissions Control Areas (effective July 2009):
- Phoenix Metro Area - Area A:
85218/85118, 85226, 85232/85132, 85239/85139, 85242/85142, 85243/85143, 85244, 85262, 85263, 85290/85190, 85322, 85326, 85332, 85337, 85339, 85342, 85354, 85390
(Zip Codes separated by a slash (/) are in the process of being changed by the U.S. Postal Service)
- Tucson Metro Area - Area B:
85629, 85641, 85653, 85654, 85658, 85735, 85736, 85739, 85743, 85746, 85747
Vehicle owners who reside in a partial zip code will be identified as "emissions test required" on their vehicle registration renewal form.
Those vehicles may be granted an Out of Area (Status Code 52) Exemption if they are registered in that partial zip code and out of the emission control area boundary. However, if the vehicle is used to commute into the emissions test boundary (area A or area B) for employment or school then by State Law, the vehicle will be required to go through testing.
Note: This information is not targeted to just Maricopa and Pima Counties, but also parts of Pinal and Yavapai.

Complete the Emissions Exemption Form (Code 52)
and submit to ADEQ or MVD with the rest of these requirements:
- Photocopy of current vehicle registration for each vehicle;
- Photocopy of a current utility bill in the name of the applicant, identifying the physical address of applicant's residence
- Photocopy of the property owner's tax evaluation notice listing the township, range and section of residence. If you do not own the property, we will require a lease/rental agreement.
