COMPLIANCE WITH NEW STATE LAW TEMPORARILY REQUIRES STATUS LETTER FOR JUVENILE DRIVER LICENCES
In order to comply with a new state law, minors who pass their drivers license examinations are temporarily required to obtain a status letter from the courts before receiving their licenses.
Act 105, approved by the state legislature and the governor, prohibits the issuance of a license to a minor if there are pending violations or proceedings that could result in suspension or revocation of the minor’s provisional license, or any pending adjudications for offenses relating to the operation of a motor vehicle. The law requires Family Court and District Court to notify the county examiner of drivers.
The courts have notified the City that they are unable at this time to interface their computer systems with the City’s systems.
Until an electronic interface between the City’s driver record system and the Judiciary’s Information Management System has been bridged, all minors who successfully pass their road test will be required to obtain a status letter from District Court, indicating the minor has no pending violations, proceedings or adjudications within the jurisdiction of the District Courts of the State of Hawaii, and present this status letter to the Motor Vehicle, Licensing and Permits Division before receiving a driver license.
