Approval of Safety Checks on Maui, Runs Into Continuity Issue with State
County officials said that while they tried to open up safety checks under Maui’s first phase of reopening, they ran into an issue with continuity since the state issues the stickers, and this service is not yet being offered by the state.
Safety checks expiring before the end of this month will remain valid until Aug. 31, 2020. All others that expire this year will be valid for an additional three months after their 2020 expiration date.
The Hawaii Department of Transportation reports that it is extending the safety check waiver to minimize unnecessary face-to-face interactions and to provide enough time for PMVI stations, Counties, and the public to conduct and process safety checks once the stay-at-home order ends.
HDOT fully supports the continued opening of stations for vehicle maintenance and repair, saying these actions are critical to keep essential travel moving.
The safety check extension does not impact the validity of the motor vehicle registration. The motor vehicle registration must still be unexpired to be valid.
