STAND. COM. REP. NO.2687
RE: S.B. No. 2314
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committees on Transportation, Military Affairs and Government Operations and Tourism and Intergovernmental Affairs, to which was referred S.B. No. 2314 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO DRIVER LICENSES,"
beg leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to authorize a temporary instruction permit holder to renew the permit within 30 days prior to its expiration without requiring full reexamination of the applicant.
Your Committees received testimony in support of this measure from the Department of Transportation and the Honolulu City and County Department of Customer Services.
Your Committees find that applicants for temporary instruction permits are examined for knowledge of traffic laws, highway signs, and physical and mental ability to operate a motor vehicle.
If a permit holder applies for renewal of the permit less than 30 days prior to expiration of the permit, your Committees find that there is no need to reexamine the applicant, and therefore your Committees support this measure. Your Committees note that if renewal is applied for more than 90 days following expiration of the instruction permit, the applicant is subject to full reexamination.
As affirmed by the records of votes of the members of your Committees on Transportation, Military Affairs and Government Operations and Tourism and Intergovernmental Affairs that are attached to this report, your Committees are in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2314 and recommend that it pass Second Reading and be placed on the calendar for Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committees on Transportation, Military Affairs and Government Operations and Tourism and Intergovernmental Affairs,
DONNA MERCADO KIM, Chair
CAL KAWAMOTO, Chair
