Vehicle registration deadline extended

LIHUE — Vehicle owners whose registrations expire on June 30 have been granted an extension until July 7, in order to accommodate those impacted by this week’s computer disruption.

To avoid a late fee, walk-in or mailed payments must be received or postmarked no later than July 7.

A computer issue that started on Oahu on Monday continues to affect all counties within the state.

Services are still suspended at this time for driver’s licenses and state IDs.

Vehicle registrations are being accepted in person, however, owners should expect delays as the computer processing systems are very slow.

County processing for bus passes, sewer, landfill, refuse and sludge payments remain in service.

Honolulu partially closed driver licensing centers on Wednesday. Kauai and Hawaii counties are suspending license and motor vehicle registration processing. Maui County is urging only those with urgent needs to come in for renewals.

Honolulu says the city’s mainframe computers shut down Monday morning and processing remained sluggish the rest of the day. The system was operational Tuesday morning but not at full capacity.
