State merges driver's license, ID programs

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 04:57 a.m. HST, Oct 31, 2012

Non-drivers will soon have more places to get their state identification cards.

That's because the state is making the Department of Transportation and the counties responsible for issuing both state identification cards and driver's licenses.

As of Jan. 2, residents will be able to obtain state identification cards at all driver's license locations in Honolulu, Maui and Kauai counties — except for satellite city halls.

In Hawaii County, residents may get their identification cards at driver's license locations in Hilo and Kona.

The attorney general's office is currently responsible for the identification card program. It issues the cards through the governor's neighbor island liaison offices and the Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Center in Honolulu.

The attorney general said Tuesday these offices will stop issuing the cards in mid-December.

So that means for Honolulu County, only the downtown city hall location. All other driver license locations are satellite city halls. So no real change--one location downtown to service the whole island, especially the elderly. No thank you--will wait until I can no longer can get a driver license to camp-out in the long lines.

Don't know about the rest, but Wahiawa satellite city hall is in another part of the main building. The driver license is ONLY for license business.

The honolulu.gov site shows five driver's license locations around Oahu that are not satellite city halls. The Kapalama office always seems to have long lines when I go there. I hope they have a separate line for state IDs.

This has to be one of the most lolo decision yet. Not at satellite halls, then why make the change. Even for this to be news worth shows a complete disconnect of reality by both the person who made the decision and S/A for publishing it. Neil what happened did you forget we are all in this canoe together. Seems like you just threw the people of Oaho into the water with the sharks.

Sorry for misspelling Oahu, I was trying to dodge the sharks.

Everyone remember when the law was passed that allowed individuals to not have their social security number associated with their drivers license? Some of you may have a social security card, like mine, that has printed right on the front: "not to be used for identification".

Finally, something with meaning coming out of the Governor's Office. Maybe now they can really do a good job and offer it at the Satellite Offices.

Wow!! That is great news. Smart move. Now senior citizens that don't drive anymore do not have to trek...into town at the one stop for all ID's. I hope the State/City will add resources (manpower) to avoid expected lines at the issuing agencies.
