STAND. COM. REP. NO.2942
RE: H.B. No. 1726
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Transportation, Military Affairs and Government Operations, to which was referred H.B. No. 1726 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO DRIVER'S LICENSE INSTRUCTION PERMIT,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to authorize the examiner of drivers to examine an applicant for a driver's license whose instruction permit has expired if a new instruction permit was obtained within thirty days of the expiration.
Your Committee received testimony in favor of this measure from the Department of Transportation and the City & County of Honolulu Department of Customer Services.
Current law requires that driver's license applicants between sixteen and seventeen years old must have had a valid instruction permit for at least ninety days prior to taking the road test. However, if a minor allows the one-year permit to expire, a new ninety-day waiting period would be required upon issuance of a new permit. Your Committee finds that this second ninety-day waiting period is unnecessary.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Transportation, Military Affairs and Government Operations that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1726, and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be placed on the calendar for Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Transportation, Military Affairs and Government Operations,
CAL KAWAMOTO, Chair
