Hawaii Raising Fees on Motor Vehicle Record Background Checks

Jun 22, 2010 - 11:44 am

Just when we thought it was safe to get back in the water, Hawaii has opted to raise the fees charged for accessing Hawaii driving records.   Hawaii is choosing to raise DMV fees from $10.00 to a whopping $23 per record.   Hawaii’s government financial problems are well known, and this fee hike is yet another measure to balance the state budget.  The fiscal problems are severe,  unfortunately this fee hike will be paid by businesses, especially transportation companies that are working to rebuild the economy.   While raising state coffers, the long term ill-affects of this huge fee hike could be yet another blow to Hawaii’s already tarnished ‘business friendly’ image.  

Employers, especially trucking and transportation firms rely heavily on CDL and non-CDL motor vehicle record reportsto screen potential drivers and current employees for safe driving habits.  Motor Vehicle Records are necessary for compliance with Department of Transportation Regulations, and help employers maintain an ongoing fleet screening program.   Motor Vehicle Records (MVRs) provide license status, license type (CDL, non-commercial, etc) accident and collision history, moving violations, medical restrictions, and any actions taken by the Department of Motor Vehicles.
