Hawaii is a unique state to live in. If you come to Hawaii with your vehicle, you will likely need to go to your local DMV to get the appropriate forms to register it. There are different requirements for drivers on all islands. Here are some of the most commonly used forms and applications. Make sure to check with your local DMV to determine if these are the appropriate forms for your island or city.

Person with a Disability Parking Permit Application (Form PA 3)

The Person with a Disability Parking Permit Application needs to be certified by a Hawaii Licensed Physician or nurse who is licensed in the state. It costs $12 for temporary and replacement placards, but the first-time card or renewal placard is free.

Person with a Disability Parking Permit Application Long Term Placard (Blue) Renewal (Form PA 2)

Form PA 2 is used when you are disabled and need to renew your disability placards. These placards are validated every six years, so you will need to complete this application to renew them.

Application/Replacement for Organization License Plates/Decal(s)

To replace or apply for organization license plates and decals, you need to go to a local Satellite City Hall with the Application/Replacement for Organization License Plates/Decal(s) form. There is an additional $25 fee on top of the car’s registration for these special plates.

Vehicle Arrival Certification (Form CS-L (MVR))

Vehicle Arrival Certification (Form CS-L (MVR)) is used to document the arrival date of any vehicle that comes into Hawaii from out of state.

Motor Vehicle Use Tax Certification (G-27)

Sometimes, you have to pay tax on your vehicle. If you do, then you should complete form G-27, the Motor Vehicle Use Tax Certification form.

Out-of-State Vehicle Permit Application (CS-L (MVR) 27)

Since Hawaii is separated from the mainland USA, you will need to complete an Out-of-State Vehicle Permit application if you have brought your vehicle to the state but won’t register it because the trip is too short. You also need to complete a vehicle safety inspection prior to applying for this permit. There is a $5 permit fee, and you also need to submit the shipping receipt or bill of lading to document your vehicle’s date of arrival. If you don’t have those, then the Vehicle Arrival Certification form is acceptable.

Safety Inspection Certificate

To meet the requirements for several of the permits in the state, you will need to complete a safety inspection.

Application for Duplicate Motor Vehicle Certificate of Registration (Form CS-L (MVR) 5)

Use the Application for Duplicate Motor Vehicle Certificate of Registration form to get a duplicate of your vehicle’s registration.
