1. Start Your Quote:
Upon a change of residence, you have 30 days to notify your county (see locations below) of the move. There are a couple of ways to go about this. Perhaps the easiest way is by mail. Simply send in a written record of the change, listing both your old abode and your new digs along with your name and driver's license number.
Probably the best means to note the change, and the option recommended by the counties, is by appearing in person at a local office. In this case, you will either fill out a form or simply note the change to the examiner. This process is pretty laid back and should not take too long unless you are on Oahu, where lines tend to be longer.
In Hawaii, you have 30 days from the name switch to appear in person at a local license office (see below). Mail is not an option in this case.
You will need to have certified evidence of the name change. This can include a marriage certificate, a divorce decree, or any court document making it official. In most instances you will be issued a new driver's license before you leave the building. You may need to pay a $5 duplicate license fee.
