(Tue., November 22, 2011)—The City and County of Honolulu Department of Customer Services advises residents that the recently mailed December 2011 vehicle registration renewal notice contains an incorrect total due amount. The renewal notices, mailed on November 18, did not include the current increase in State of Hawaii weight tax and registration fee because of a computer programming error.


Corrected registration renewal notices will be mailed with the words “CORRECTED MOTOR VEHICLE RENEWAL” appearing above the mailing address. Residents are asked to wait for the corrected notice, pay at the nearest satellite city hall or renew their vehicle registration online at The correct total due amount is reflected online and will be charged at the satellite city halls. If the applicant mails the renewal with the incorrect payment amount, the renewal will be rejected. The vehicle registration renewals are due Saturday, December 31, 2011.


            Licensing Administrator Dennis Kamimura apologizes for the inconvenience and adds that “steps have been implemented to prevent a reoccurrence.”
