Citizens can now schedule tests, make payments and more from the comfort of their homes
HONOLULU--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Through their partnership, the Hawaii County Vehicle Registration and Licensing Division and NIC Hawaii have launched a new service allowing citizens to schedule their road test online. Users can now go online to view availability, schedule and make payments to reserve an available time slot for their driver's license road test for any of the five Hawaii County Vehicle Registration and Licensing locations.
Previously, reservations and payments could only be done via phone or in person. With the launch of this service, users can now use any browser on a computer or a mobile device where internet access is available.
With the recent public safety concerns due to COVID-19, the County of Hawaii offices are seeking to restrict walk-in services at this time and encourage citizens to use this new service. Now, applicants can select their desired test appointment date and time, submit required documentation and make payments online from the comfort and safety of their home.
"We are excited and happy to have another avenue in which our customers can schedule appointments for road tests,” said Naomi O'Dell, County of Hawaii Vehicle Registration and Licensing Administrator. “This application is informative, easy to use and will provide that same convenience through the pandemic and beyond.”
The Hawaii County Vehicle Registration and Licensing Division Driver License Road Test Scheduler service and website was created in partnership with NIC Hawaii, the official internet portal manager of eHawaii.gov.
“The road test scheduler is a one-stop shop for citizens looking to take their road test with minimal contact,” said Burt Ramos, NIC Hawaii General Manager. “The convenience the scheduler offers is something we’re proud of and ensures citizens can interact with government from the comfort of their own homes.”
