Moving to a different home can be simultaneously exciting and stressful. Aside from all of the other things you must do, updating your address with the state's Department of Motor Vehicles is necessary to make certain documents like your license and registration match the updated address. All states require that you change your address within a short time period soon after you move.
Be sure to file your Hawaii DMV change of address within 30 days of moving as this is the recommendation provided by most Hawaii counties. In Hawaii, each county handles license and vehicle registration address changes slightly differently. Here is city and county specific information:
