Is there a better way to handle this vehicle registration timing issue?

I currently live in Arizona and have a vehicle that's due for reregistration. However, in the next 1-3 months, I'll be moving out of state to Virginia (either Virginia Beach or Chantilly).
I've contacted the AZ DMV and they don't offer refunds for partial years of vehicle registration. Before I bite the bullet and give them ~$230 and then have to pay again to reregister it almost immediately, is there a better way to handle this situation?
Virginia requires new residents to register their vehicle and get a new drivers license within 30 days. I'm also under the impression that I'd have to reregister to update my auto insurance. The DMV states that they can register any vehicle with current or lapsed-within-12-months registration.
Please let me know if any more information would be useful - this is my first time moving a vehicle. Thanks!
