Driver licensing center in Wahiawa remaining closed until Oct. 1

The city’s Department of Customer Services announced today that the Wahiawa Driver Licensing Center will remain closed to in-person visits until Oct. 1 as it takes precautions after a clerk tested positive for coronavirus last week.

All employees at the Wahiawa Driver Licensing Center are being quarantined after their co-worker’s positive test was confirmed Wednesday, Sept. 16. The confirmed case has prevented the site from reopening Thursday, Sept. 24 with the other driver licensing centers on Oahu for in-person services by appointment only.

When the Wahiawa Driver Licensing Center resumes in-person services Thursday, Oct. 1, it will only be conducting road tests. All other appointments at the Wahiawa Driver Licensing Center will be rescheduled to the Kapolei Driver Licensing Center, starting Sept. 24.

“Due to the limited size of the Wahiawa driver licensing facility and the potential hazard it may pose for both the visiting public and staff, service offerings will be adjusted there indefinitely,” said Sheri Kajiwara, director of the city’s Department of Customer Services.

The Wahiawa Satellite City Hall will continue to operate as normal on an appointment-only basis, performing such services as registering vehicles, transferring titles and issuing disability parking permits.

Road test examiners at the Wahiawa Driver Licensing Centers have been directly contacting applicants whose appointments were canceled between Aug. 27 and Sept. 23, and rescheduling them at the site. Saturday hours for road test appointments will also be offered at the Wahiawa Driver Licensing Center, beginning Oct. 3.
