When is a Permit Test Required in HI?

Automobile License

Hawaii DMV allows minors to start their driving practice on the roads from the age of 15 ½. At this age, you can earn an instruction permit (type 3) after passing a general knowledge test, which is taken in written form. The HI DMV permit test questions are built upon the Driver’s Manual covering general rules of the road and safe driving practices.

To be eligible for the testing, an applicant has to collect the following documents:

  • U.S. birth certificate or other legal presence documents;
  • SSC;
  • an application form with parental consent.

Minors, who earned their permit, have to complete driver education and to acquire driving skills under supervision. Under these conditions and at least 180 days after the permit was issued, you can move on to the next step in Hawaii graduated DL program and take a road examination. When getting through the exam, the applicants are issued a provisional license (available only for persons, who are over 16). It may be upgraded to Class 3 DL only when the applicant turns 17 and provided he/she has held the provisional license for at least 6 months. Note that the provisional license will expire when they turn 19.

To receive the instruction permit, adults have to submit an appropriate application and documents establishing their identity, SSN, and legal presence. Then they are required to undergo eye and knowledge tests, and if they are successfully passed, the applicants will obtain the permit, which is valid for a year. Until you get Class 3 DL, you must operate a car only being accompanied by a licensed driver, who is 21 or older.

When applying for the instruction permit or Class 3 DL, keep in mind paying the corresponding fees:

  • $8 road test fee;
  • $2 written test fee;
  • $5 instruction permit fee;
  • $20 4-year driver license fee.

Motorcycle License

According to Hawaii official DMV website, there are separate licenses for operating motorcycles/motor scooters (Class 2) and mopeds (Class 1). Both licenses require passing a vision screening, a general knowledge test, a special knowledge test (based on Motorcycle Operator Manual) and a road skills exam. The general test may not be mandatory for those holding Class 3 license. Minors under 18 must complete a certified driver education course, to provide a Behind-the-Wheel Student Completion Certificate and to acquire driving skills under learner’s permit (issued at least 90 days prior), before they are admitted to the road test.

As for mopeds, the applicant may choose either to obtain a Class 1 license or earn any other type of DL, as it is allowed to operate mopeds on Hawaii public roads, holding any category of license.

Commercial Driver’s License

The applicants are allowed to qualify for CDL only if they are 21. A valid DL is required when applying for CDL, along with a medical examiner’s certificate. Getting through an eye examination and knowledge testing is a necessary step to gain an instruction permit. It is valid for a year, allowing behind-the-wheel practice under supervision. Then the applicant has to undergo a road examination to obtain CDL of the desired class and to get a necessary endorsement.

Hawaii CDL fees may include:

  • $50 skills test fee;
  • $30 instruction permit or driver license fees;
  • $15 general knowledge test fee;
  • $5 specific test fee.

Before you make an attempt to pass any of the above-stated knowledge tests in a DMV office, it would be clever to take a permit test online on Driver-Start.com. This will allow you to test the depth of your knowledge and to find out more about real test questions. Also, Driver Start learning tools will help you identify areas for improvement.

Practice Driver Knowledge Test and Learn 10 Tips about Driving on Snowy and Icy Road

Did you find any useful practical tips about driving in adverse weather conditions in the Driver’s Manual you read before your driver knowledge test? Yes, there is something about safety when driving on a slippery road or during heavy rain and snow, but basically, the manuals give general recommendations about adjusting to specific driving conditions. So, it is hardly possible that you gain deep knowledge of driving on an icy road, while you practice the driver knowledge test. Behind-the-wheel experience is more useful, but it is rather dangerous to obtain it without being prepared in advance. On the other hand, you can practice the permit test and at the same time get prepared by reading helpful tips from experienced drivers. We collect the most common of them, starting from how to avoid dangerous situations and ending with how to act when you get on black ice.
