Meetings scheduled for Hilo and Kona on new Driver License rules


Federal and State mandates now prohibit the issuance of a driver license or permit to any person who is not legally authorized to be in the United States. Individuals applying for or renewing a Hawai‘i driver’s license or permit are required to provide proof of identity, date of birth, Social Security Number, and legal presence. Proof of an individual’s legal presence includes a U.S. birth certificate, U.S. passport or other documents.

Meetings to explain these new requirements and to answer questions on applying for or renewing your driver’s license or permit will be held on:

Hilo: Tuesday, July 24, 5 – 6 p.m.
Aupuni Center Conference Room
101 Pauahi Street, Hilo

Kona: Thursday, July 26, 5 – 6 p.m.
County Council Room
Building A
West Hawai’i Civic Center
74-5044 Ane Keohokalole Highway, Kailua-Kona

This is a part of a series of meetings to inform the public about the new requirements to help reduce the wait time and ensure that everyone comes in with the correct documents. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we comply with these new Federal and State mandates.

These meeting places are accessible to persons with disabilities. To request accommodations, call 961-8021.
