Hawaii Vehicle Titles

How to sign your Hawaii Vehicle Title

Be sure to sign and print your name exactly as spelled on the front of your Hawaii title. Avoid erasures, scribbles, and strike-throughs. If your Hawaii title shows a lien or a bank name printed on the front, then your title will need to be signed off by the lien holder or have a separate lien release letter.

  • On the front of title, toward the bottom half, sign and print above the line where it reads “Printed Name” and  “Signature of Seller.”
