Driver Licensing and State Identification Card offices across the state, including the County of Hawaii’s locations, closed early Wednesday afternoon after they were affected by a computer outage on Oahu. The system was expected to be back in operation this morning, and Hawaii County Driver Licensing offices were expected to be open. However, the combination of this week’s holiday and this afternoon’s outage raise the possibility of extended wait times.
Motor vehicle registration services were not affected by the outage and were to resume as normal today. Hawaii County recommended that residents seeking driver license or state ID services consider rescheduling to another day if possible to avoid the possibility of longer than usual wait times.
