HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Changes are coming that may save you a trip to the DMV.

The city is allowing Oahu residents to replace their state ID cards, and renew some drivers licenses by mail. In-person appointments are no longer needed for two-year and four-year drivers' licenses.

The city is trying to catch up after more than 78,000 motor vehicles department appointments were canceled because of the COVID-19 lockdowns.

You’ll still have to make an in-person visit if you’re renewing a state ID or applying for a new one.

City officials say the new procedures will free up more of the 1,600 daily appointment slots for those who still need in-person services.
