You may operate your recently arrived vehicle on Maui if it is currently registered in another state under the following conditions:

1. The vehicle is registered in your name.

2. A Hawaii safety check inspection from an authorized safety check station has been obtained.
3. An out-of-state vehicle permit from the Department of Motor Vehicle Registration within 30 days of its arrival on Maui is issued. To obtain the permit, submit the following:

* A completed out-of-state vehicle permit application form, MVR/DF53.
The current out-of-state certificate of registration.

* A bill of lading or shipping receipt which shows the date the vehicle arrived on Maui.

* The Hawaii Certificate Of Safety Check Inspection.

* $10.00 payment for the permit.
