The state of Hawaii is reminding its residents to have all of the required documents when it comes to renewing your Hawaii driver’s license.
Motorists renewing their Hawaii driver’s licenses began bearing a star in a gold circle, which began last year on Jan. 16.
This indicates that the license is in full compliance with new Federal guidelines.
To obtain the gold star driver’s licenses, which indicates the license is Real ID compliant, motorists must present the following documents to the Vehicle Registration & Licensing Division:
- A U.S. State, Local Government- issued Certificate of Birth; or a valid U.S. Passport or Passport Card;
- For married women who changed their names, a certified government-issued marriage certificate (showing name on birth certificate)
- A Social Security card (unlaminated) showing current name;
- Two documents showing your physical address (such as a HELCO bill). If you use a post office box number, submit one document with the post office box number and one document with your physical address.
Customers may pay with cash or personal checks; no credit cards.
No change is required at this time to currently-valid licenses.
