3. What is a temporary driver’s permit?

Posted on Jan 13, 2017 in

Pursuant to HRS 291E-33, the law enforcement officer is required to take possession of any license held by you when you are arrested for OVUII.  When this happens, the law enforcement officer may issue you a temporary permit allowing you to operate a vehicle for 30 days for an alcohol related offense (or 44 days for a drug related offense) from the date you were issued your NOAR when you were arrested for OVUII.  The temporary permit is subject to the same restrictions as your license, and you must have it in your possession at all times when operating a vehicle.  You must possess a valid driver’s license at the time of arrest, and you must surrender the license to the law enforcement officer at the time of arrest, in order to get a temporary permit.
