30. Someone else falsely used my identity when they were arrested for OVUII, and now my driver’s license has been revoked. What can I do?Posted on Jan 13, 2017 in
Hawai’i’s criminal history records are supported by fingerprints of the individuals arrested. Because an individual at the time of arrest may use alias names, a fingerprint comparison, in conjunction with other identifying information, is the best way to be sure if a person was arrested or not. If your fingerprints do not match the person who was arrested, then it may be possible for ADLRO to clear your driver’s license revocation.
If you know the arresting law enforcement agency, contact them first and request documentation certifying that you are not the person who was arrested for the OVUII leading to the license revocation in question. This is the best proof that you were not the person arrested. Honolulu Police Department Fingerprinting can be contacted at: 808-529-3111.
You can also contact the Hawai’i Criminal Justice Data Center (HCJDC), a division of the Department of the Attorney General, to request a fingerprint background check: http://ag.Hawai’i.gov/hcjdc/ (phone: 808-587-3100).
Once you get appropriate documentation showing that you are not the person who was arrested for the OVUII leading to the license revocation in question, submit a copy of that documentation to ADLRO. We will work with you to clear your driver’s license revocation and help restore your eligibility for relicensing, if in fact you are not the person who was arrested for the OVUII leading to the license revocation.
