Safety checks for vehicle registrations temporarily halted

HONOLULU -- O‘ahu motorists are reminded that a safety check inspection is not required to renew motor vehicle registrations that are expiring in April or May.

The Hawai‘i Department of Transportation has closed safety inspection stations to comply with social distancing recommendations stemming from COVID-19 and extended safety inspection certificates as well as stickers through May 31, 2020.

"An expired safety inspection will not hinder a vehicle registration renewal during this emergency period," said Sheri Kajiwara, director of the city's Department of Customer Services.

The reminder comes as 133,928 motor vehicle registrations on O‘ahu are scheduled to be renewed between April and May.

Vehicle registrations can be renewed online, at self-service kiosks inside select Safeway and Foodland stores, as well as by mail. More information on these options is available at the Department of Customer Services website.
