The City and County of Honolulu, the County of Maui, the County of Hawaii and the County of Kaui are advising residents that the recently mailed December 2011 vehicle registration renewal notice contains an incorrect total due amount.
Corrected registration renewal notices will be mailed with the words "CORRECTED MOTOR VEHICLE RENEWAL" appearing above the mailing address.
The renewal notices, mailed on November 18, did not include the current increase in State of Hawaii weight tax and registration fee because of a computer programming error.
Residents are asked to wait for the corrected notice in the mail, pay in person at your local motor vehicle registration office. You can also renew online.
The correct total due amount is reflected online and will be charged when your registration is renewed online.
If the applicant mails the renewal with the incorrect payment amount, the renewal will be rejected. The vehicle registration renewals are due by Saturday, December 31, 2011.
The counties apologize for the inconvenience and adds that steps have been implemented to prevent a reoccurrence.
