The Hawaii Motor Vehicle Safety Inspection program is a requirement for all forms of motorized vehicles that operate on State and County road ways in the State of Hawaii. The Vehicle Inspection program is designed to insure that all vehicles operated on public roads are in safe operating condition. Vehicle inspections are required to be renewed annually on vehicles over 2 years of age from date of manufactured. For a vehicle to qualify for issuance of new inspection decals when due, the vehicle must pass all points of inspection performed by the o icial Vehicle inspection station.

State law requires that all vehicles must be insured by recognized Motor Vehicle Carriers registered in the state of Hawaii and carry a valid “Hawaii NO Fault” insurance card in the vehicle at all times. Also, the vehicle must have current vehicle registration and issued decal affixed to the rear license plate.

The State of Hawaii also mandates that window “Tinting” or window “Film” applied to the inside of any window (excluding the front windshield) require the following regulations:

Window film darkness Scale:
5% (Darkest) 20% 35% 50% 75% (Lightest)
