Since the emergency period began in March 2020, the City and County of Honolulu reported fewer than 50,000 driver’s licenses and learner’s permits remain expired.
Residents who don’t update their credentials when the extension ends will face penalties, depending on how long they wait to renew. They may also have to start the process over for obtaining a driver’s license or state ID.
