County of Kaua‘i officials, in partnership with Foodland and Intellectual Technology Inc. (ITI), launched this week the island’s fourth self-service kiosk for motor vehicle registrations at Foodland in Princeville.

“Our DMV kiosks in Kapa‘a and Līhu‘e Safeways, and Ishihara Market in Waimea, have been widely used by the community as a quick and convenient option to renew their vehicle registrations,” said Mayor Derek SK Kawakami. “We are grateful to our Finance Department team and our County Council for their support of this new kiosk location which will better serve our North Shore residents.”

The Princeville self-service kiosk will allow customers to pay for their motor vehicle registrations via a touchscreen by entering their license plate number or scanning the bar code of their motor vehicle renewal form. Vehicles must have valid safety checks to use the kiosk.

Customers may only use debit or credit cards for transactions and will incur a $3 service fee as well as a 2.5% debit and credit card fee. Once a transaction is made, the kiosk will print out the vehicle registration and license plate tabs instantly.

“I just want to thank the Mayor and his Administration for their diligent work to modernize County services and provide the North Shore with a convenient way to renew their vehicle registration,” said Council Chair Arryl Kaneshiro.

“The addition of a DMV kiosk in Princeville is deeply appreciated by our North Shore community, especially with the additional challenge of multiple road construction points from Hā‘ena to Līhu‘e,” said Councilmember Felicia Cowden.
