FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                      June 15, 2005

Release M-41





            Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann today (June 15) announced that the Hawaii Kai Satellite City Hall has expanded its service to include issuing driver license renewals and duplicates.


            Office hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.  The Hawaii Kai office is located in Suite 101 of the Hawaii Kai Corporate Plaza, 6600 Kalanianaole Highway, at the corner of Keahole Street.  It opened in January 2003, providing residents a facility in East Honolulu to conduct motor vehicle registration transactions, obtain camping and disabled parking permits, pay real property taxes and water bills and buy bus passes.


            “We are pleased to be able to offer this additional service and convenience,” said Mayor Hannemann.  “We plan to expand our services in the months to come.”


            Hawaii Kai is the third satellite city hall to offer driver’s license renewals and duplicates.  The satellite city halls at Fort Street Mall (since 1988) and Windward Mall (since 2000) also offer the service.  Duplicates and renewals, as well as road tests, can also be obtained at City driver licensing facilities at City Square in Kapalama, Kapolei Hale, Wahiawa, Waianae (on Mondays and Wednesdays only) and Pearl City.


            In fiscal year 2004 (July 1, 2003 to June 30, 2004), the Fort Street Mall satellite issued 6,947 renewals and duplicate licenses.  It issued 20,398 so far this fiscal year.  For the Windward Mall satellite, the increase was even more dramatic, from 5,055 last fiscal year to 24,568 yesterday.


            “One reason for the increase is the public’s growing interest in identity theft and people’s desire to turn in their old licesnses, which carry their Social Security numbers,” said the mayor.  “In addition, the closure of the Kaneohe driver licensing facility led more people to use the satellite city halls.”
