The above is the first picture of the new Hawaii license plate/stamp, released by Harris on October 31, 2015. This unique design replaces the current Hawaiian plate/stamp, which has been used since July 1, 2011.
Reactions from Hawaiians:
“This symbolizes an ancient island culture and land,” said Rep. John G. Mizuno Jr., who represents Kailua and ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2010. “It’s a beautiful symbol representing our islands and our people.”
“To me, it looks like Dasani water or poi,” said Sarah Lualdi, 18, a student at Kamehameha Schools based in Wahiawa. “When I see it on my friends’ cars, I always ask them why they have it.”
In a notice dated November 14, 2015, to registered vehicle owners in Hawaii, DMV revealed that all vehicles must be replaced with new Hawaii plates starting December 26 (on Wednesday). The replacement process will take about 2-3 weeks after obtaining your new plates from DMV (new plates will arrive around mid-December). If you don’t receive your new dishes by January 12 (when the old plates expire), you may choose to get them mailed to you (the standard charge for this service is $14). And if you still need to receive your new Hawaii license plate or any correspondence from DMV regarding your old plate replacement process as of January 12, 2016, please contact DMV at 1-800-544-4966… Note: The state of Hawaii charges $8 per tag sent out by mail!
