HONOLULU (KHON2) — The Kauai DMV will reopen for walk-in services starting Thursday, July 22. The announcement comes after Governor David Ige plans to end the COVID-19 emergency extension for driver’s licenses, non-CDL permits and state IDs.

Meanwhile, DMVs across the state are accepting appointments online and/or walk-ins. Some locations are also offering extended hours to address the backlog of renewals.

Appointment holders may check in for a scheduled appointment up to 15 minutes prior to their appointment time.
