Hey everyone,

A question about vehicle registration. In AZ we only have a rear license plate. Will I be eligible for the out of state registration with only the one plate? I hope so, because AZ won't issue a duplicate plate to mount on the front bumper. Will they give me an inspection sticker or will I have to go directly to DMV?

If not, I assume I'll have to get 2 HI plates and go through the regular registration process. In this scenario, will I get credit for my current tags?

Much thanks,

mike

Yes, you can get approved to use your out-of-state registration, by filling out a form and paying $10.
You still have to get a a safety inspection (about $16) and show proof of insurance - your Arizona insurance card won't work. You have to have a Hawaii insurance card.

Unless you have many months left - I wouldn't do it. Your vehicle will attract attention from the wrong people. You will want to blend in, instead.

Yes, you are eligible for out of state registration with only 1 plate - but as mdand3boys mentioned - you are setting yourself up for much more increased scrutiny. For instance - you approach an intersection - a police car comes the opposite direction - you can get pulled over. And getting pulled over opens all sorts of other scrutiny such as drinking or anything else they can find - or a cop having a bad day.

Note that you get credit for the time left on your registration. So if your current tags don't expire till October, the HI tags will expire then too. You won't have to pay the HI Vehicle Registration - by weight- fees until then.
