Staffing issues related to high infection rates of COVID-19 on Hawaiʻi Island have prompted reduced hours and services for the County of Hawaiʻi Division of Vehicle Licensing and Registration.

The Hilo and Kaʻū Drivers Licensing Offices will be closed today, Jan. 5. The Hilo office is expected to reopen Thursday, Jan. 6, and Kaʻū on Tuesday, Jan. 11.

Additionally, Waimea canceled all road tests scheduled for today and will also be closed for lunch between noon-1 p.m. The Hilo Vehicle Registration Office will remain open, pending staff availability.

“The county remains committed to providing quality and timely service to all residents and will promptly notify the public of any further changes to regular schedules or services,” officials stated.
