DMV Operations Resume, Deadline Remains Extended

The County of Hawai’i’s Vehicle Registration and Licensing Division announced Thursday morning that the computer mainframe issue that arose earlier in the week has been fixed.

Normal processing of vehicle registrations and driver’s licenses has resumed.

The extension of the division’s renewal deadline for vehicle registrations and driver’s licenses remains in effect. The deadline was moved from June 30 to July 7, to ensure that the public is not penalized as the end of the month approaches.

According to the county, the Hawai’i Police Department has also been notified so that people are not ticketed during the grace period.

Since Monday, the County of Hawai’i’s Vehicle Registration and Licensing Division was unable to process vehicle registrations and driver’s licenses due to the failure of a mainframe system used statewide by all of the Counties’ DMVs, maintained by the City and County of Honolulu.
