Farm Vehicles Have New Safety Check Form to Fill Out
Farmers renewing their safety checks have a new form to fill out to do so.
The new forms for designated covered farm vehicles are available on the Hawai‘i Department of Transportation’s website, and only apply for farm rigs.
Owners with a previously approved exempt vehicle form for a farm vehicle whose safety check is up for renewal, use the new form when renewing the vehicle’s safety check, HDOT instructed. All previously approved exempt vehicle forms will no longer be valid once the vehicle’s current safety check expires.
Rig owners are asked to bring their previously approved exempt vehicle form along with the new “Designation as a Hawaii Covered Farm Vehicle Farm” form to the motor vehicle safety office for approval. They will be unable to renew the safety check without completing the new form.
The current state law is outdated and therefore replaced by the federal regulatory requirements. These requirements have been adopted by the State of Hawai‘i.
The forms are available here.
The form can be found under the “Motor Carrier Safety Section” of this page, where a link to the form is available; it is listed as “Designation as a Hawaii Covered Farm Vehicle.” Hard copies of the forms are also available at HDOT’s Motor Vehicle Safety Office.
