In Hawaii, the Administrative Driver's License Revocation Office (ADLRO) requires certain drivers to provide proof of financial responsibility. These drivers have to prove to the State of Hawaii that they will be financially responsible in the event of a future accident. This can be done in the following ways:
Most drivers opt for the SR22 insurance option. SR22 insurance is a liability policy that establishes an agreement between an insurance company and the State of Hawaii. The insurance company communicates to the State that a driver is in fact insured by providing an SR22 form. If the driver at any time loses his or her insurance, the insurance company alerts the State by filing an SR26 form.
The ADLRO requires proof of financial responsibility in the following instances:
An SR22 requirement lasts for 3 years.
Your SR22 form must be provided by an insurance company that is authorized to do business in the State of Hawaii. We have partnered with the top insurance companies in Hawaii to offer you the best SR22 rates possible. To get your personalized quote, enter your zip code here:
If the ADLRO or the District Court revokes your driver's license for an OVUII, you will be required to install an ignition interlock device (IID) in your vehicle. The only authorized ignition interlock vendor in Hawaii is Safe Start, Inc. It will cost about $80 to install the device, and there is then an $80 per month rental fee. There may also be a removal fee.
Once you've installed the IID, you will need to contact the ADLRO to apply for an ignition interlock permit. This will allow you to drive, with the interlock device, during your revocation period.
You will need to provide proof of financial responsibility, e.g., SR22 insurance, in order to get your ignition interlock permit.
When your revocation period is over, and you have fulfilled the requirements ordered by the court (e.g., substance abuse rehabilitation), then you can apply for a new driverâ€™s license. There will be a $20 reinstatement fee.
