Your safety is #1

The State of Hawaii Periodic Motor Vehicle Safety Inspection is required for all vehicles less than 10,000 lbs. GVWR.  An inspection is to ensure that all vehicles comply with County, State, and Federal laws for the safety and the well being of everyone.

Please be aware that laws vary from state to state and our inspectors are trained and certified to follow the procedures in the Hawaii Revised Statutes.  Our safety inspections are offered on a “first come, first served” basis. Simply sign up in the front office and an inspector will assist you as soon as possible.

Kahului, Maui car, truck, utility and boat trailers, motorcycle and moped safety inspections

Safety inspections are offered Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm.

A defect will cause the vehicle to fail the inspection and will not receive a sticker. However, we will inform you should your vehicle not pass before we complete the inspection.  We will not charge you if you do not want to procede to the failure to pass or “VOID” form.  A “VOID” inspection form will be issued with defects noted. You have 30 days to correct the defects. Vehicles with defects not corrected within 30 days will be subject to another inspection as well as inspection fees. Stickers will only be affixed to the vehicle when it complies with all rules and regulations.

In order to register, all defects (except the registration defect) need to be corrected first.

What you need to bring

A current vehicle registration certificate and a Hawaii No Fault Insurance ID Card are required to complete the inspection.  Motorcycles and motor scooters need a current registration and Hawaii liability or no-fault ID card.  As of 7/2/2016, mopeds will need registration documents.

The fee for automobiles and trucks is $19.19 plus $0.80 tax for a total of $19.99. A vehicle with aftermarket window tinting is an extra $5.00 plus $1.01 tax for a total of $25.20.
