County Officials Encourage Residents to Use Self-Service DMV Kiosk in Princeville
The self-service DMV kiosk at Foodland in Princeville has seen little use since it was installed in April. As a result, county officials are reminding the public to take advantage of it.
“Instead of sitting in traffic or waiting in long lines at the DMV, why not renew your vehicle registration at a DMV kiosk closest to you,” said Mayor Derek SK Kawakami. “We have four kiosks on every side of the island, where you can complete quick and easy transactions at your convenience.”
The other three DMV kiosks are located at Safeway in Kapa‘a and Līhu‘e, and Ishihara Market in Waimea.
“Since its launch in April, there hasn’t been as many people utilizing our Princeville DMV kiosk compared to the others across the island,” said Finance Director Reiko Matsuyama. “We want to remind all residents, especially our North Shore community, of this great service that offers a fast and easy way to renew your vehicle registration, saving you time and effort.”
The county’s self-service DMV kiosk allows 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.
