Kūpuna Hours Designated at DMV

Posted July 14, 2020, 9:30 AM HST ·Updated July 14, 8:22 AM

Kūpuna hours will be offered at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) starting Wednesday.

The kūpuna hours will be from 7-8 a.m., Monday through Thursday, throughout the month of July as a pilot program. The designated timeframe will allow residents ages 65 and over access to DMV services. The program is designed to help stop the spread of COVID-19 to Kaua‘i’s vulnerable population, while still providing county services.

During these dedicated hours for kūpuna, no appointments will be needed as customers will be seen on a first-come first-served basis. However, kūpuna are advised to arrive no later than 7:45 a.m. to ensure service. Road testing will not be offered during this time.

Updates to kūpuna hours will be announced as needed.

All other customers will be seen by appointment only. The DMV has recently implemented an online appointment scheduling system. Appointments can be made at https://kauaidmvappt.cxmflow.com/en/WizardAppt/Units. To access the link through the County of Kaua‘i website, visit www.kauai.gov and click on the “GetInLineOnline” icon.

As a reminder, social distancing guidelines will be enforced, and face masks will be required for entry and service. For more information or questions about the Department of Motor Vehicles, visit www.kauai.gov/finance or call 808-241-4200.
