Moving to Hawaii: What drivers should know about each island's licensing laws

2 years 27 weeks ago by Elizabeth Erickson
Hawaii is a U.S. state like no other. This island archipelago lies far away from the continental U.S. in the Pacific Ocean. Yet Hawaii is just like other U.S. states in that its driving laws are uniformly applied. The individual islands do not have individualized licensing. However, you must get your license on the island on which you reside. Hawaii County, Honolulu County, Kauai County, Kalawao County, and Maui County each offer their own state DMV licensing facilities.

Considerations For Active Duty Military Drivers Moving Out Of State

2 years 27 weeks ago by Elizabeth Erickson
If you are in the military, it�۪s likely that you move around every two years or so. When you are on temporary assignment, you can drive in a state without any issue as long as you have a driver�۪s license elsewhere in the country. However, if you move to that new state, you will need to get a driver�۪s license in that state. This means that you will need to take a DMV practice test to prepare you for the knowledge test that you will be given.
