Kokua Line: Certain drivers can renew expired Hawaii license without road, written tests


Question: During the pandemic it has been a nightmare to get my birth certificate, marriage licenses and divorce decrees from out of state so I can prove my identity and get a new driver’s license.

If you renew during Hawaii’s COVID-19 emergency period, which currently extends through April 13, you won’t have to retake the written test or road test — as is usually required of people who let their license lapse for more than a year — because your one-year license reactivation period ends this month, within the emergency period.

The state Department of Transportation explains this on its website, which says, “If the one-year reactivation (renewal) period ended during the Hawaii COVID-19 emergency period, you may reactivate (renew) your DL even if more than one year has passed without having to retake the written test and road test as long as the reactivation (renewal) is completed during the Hawaii COVID-19 emergency period. The DL will not be reactivated (renewed) after the one-year period ends once the Hawaii COVID-19 emergency period has ended and an application for an instruction permit will be required that would also require passing the written test and road test before being issued a driver’s license…
