* NEW REQUIREMENT TO GET YOUR HAWAII LEARNER'S PERMIT

 

There are new requirement to obtain a Hawaii Learner's permit.  Please follow the link below:

New requirement to obtain a Hawaii Learner's Permit


STUDY, STUDY, STUDY!

 

Before you go down to get your permit, I hope you have been studying the Hawaii Driver's Manual. If you need one, you can buy one at Long's Drugs usually located at the front near a checkout stand or by the magazine rack. You can download one for free by going to the state website here:

Hawaii Driver's Manual PDF

If you can answer all the questions in the back of the book without looking for the answers in the text, you are probably ready.  Good luck and call me when you are ready to get behind the wheel!

HERE'S THE LOW DOWN..........

 

The above information was copied from the Hawaii.gov website. My suggestion to you is to make sure you have everything ready before going down. It'll save you a trip, trust me. The following is my version of what to do.


Signature for Minors

 

The easy thing to do is get an application form first. (from one of the state licensing offices) Have someone run in and get the form. Do not stand in line, get form from the counter.  I have extra copies so if you see me with all my classroom stuff, ask me for one.

OPTION 1 - have parent(s), and/or guardian if required go to a Notary Public and sign the form. Once notorized, take it down to apply.

OPTION 2 - both parents can go down and stand in line at the licensing office to sign the application. (bring ID)

OPTION 3 - If parents are separated or cannot be in the same place at the same time, have 1 parent sign the completed form (except for the last signature), take it down down to the licensing office. Tell them to hold it and another parent will come down to sign the remaining signature.

Option 4 - If one parent is out of state, you will have to send it to them for signature and notorization. Have the form sent back to you for completion.

I may not have covered every avenue of guardianship here so if not, you may have to seek further assistance on this matter.


 

No brainer, just bring in your birth certificate. If you don't have one, get one. Hawaii born students can click the link below to go to this website and order one:


Get your Hawaii Birth Certificate


You won't be able to download your birth certificate but it will be mailed out to you.


If you were born out of state and have no family to get one for you, here is a website for you to order one:


www.vitalchek.com


There is a fee for these services


When I took my son Steven II down for his permit, they wouldn't except his passport even though it is listed.  Don't know why but save yourself the trip, bring a birth certificate.


Proof of Social Security

 

Bring in the orignal card. If you lost or can't find it, go to the Social Security Administration office (Federal Building) and get a duplicate. To save some time, go to:

www.ssa.gov

Download an application and fill it out before going down. It shouldn't cost you anything to get a duplicate as long as you haven't exceeded 3 request for Social Security card duplicates in a 10 year period. They'll mail it to you. I think mine took about a week. If you never had one, I guess you'll have to apply for one.


FEES

 

Bring cash or check. I don't believe they take debit or credit cards yet but I maybe wrong. $2 for the test, $5 for the permit card, if you pass the test. Wear a nice shirt/blouse and comb/brush your hair. They are going to take your picture.
