A Feeling of Enthusiasm and Eagerness There’s lots of enthusiasm in the air here in Hawaii. The 2017 First Hawaii International Auto Show’s theme “START THE EXCITEMENT!â€? captures the feeling. As I get behind the HADA wheel as president this year, and push the start button, I’m deeply grateful for the many dealers and associate members who have worked so hard to make HADA a respected industry trade association. Over the years, your solid contributions to our PAC. Your high participation rate in our annual HADA convention. Your active involvement with Dealer Day at the Capitol. Your support for the Teacher of the Year. Your involvement in national issues at NADA’s Washington Conference. All have made HADA well known and respected for standout leadership with regard to providing solutions. If HADA can help the City and County of Honolulu get online vehicle registration up and running at full strength by July 1, as called for in the bill we recently initiated, and helped shepherd to passage, then there will deďŹ nitely reason for excitement this year. I look forward to working with fellow dealers and our associate members to provide solutions for the many issues facing our state and our industry. Here’s to a great 2017!

HADA’s Letter to Mark Wong

March 9, 2017 Mr. Mark D. Wong Chief Information Officer Director, Department of Information Technology City and County of Honolulu Frank Fasi Municipal Building, 650 S. King St., 5th floor Honolulu, Hawaii 96813 Subject: DIT’s request for our industry to provide a “Dream List” showing the desired features of a DMV online registration system for new and used motor vehicles Dear Director Wong: The members of our industry much appreciated the opportunity to meet with you Friday, February 25, 2017 in your office, along with third-party service providers, to discuss the launch of a DMV online registration system for new and used motor vehicles. We also appreciate Councilmember Kymberly Pine’s attendance at the meeting and her offer to coordinate with the City and County of Honolulu Corporation Counsel regarding authority for DIT to request and use dealer-provided account number information for a beta test of an ACH system that would allow dealers to pay by check online, for City registration services. With regard to DIT’s request for our industry to provide a “Dream List” showing the desired features of a DMV online registration and ownership transfer system for new and used motor vehicles, please see the following overview statement, provided by Greg LeLesch of Manheim/Cox Automotive, describing a desired system: A motor vehicle buyer signs an electronic version of the title form at purchase that conveys the buyer’s name, address, and miles on the vehicle. The title information is completed by the dealer once the financing (if any) is finalized, and is submitted to DMV for review and approval. The approved file triggers a fee deduction from the dealer’s account and an email is sent to the buyer and dealer recording title transfer and reference number. Registration, inspection sticker, and plate (for new car) are printed and provided to the customer by the dealer, with the assistance of a bonded third-party service provider of registration services.

HADA’s Letter to Mark Wong

page 2/3

In the short-term, our industry is pleased to offer help in launching the Automated Clearing House (ACH) feature by providing account numbers for a beta test of the system. We understand that DIT is seeking approval from Corporation Counsel, through Councilmember Pine, one of the co-sponsors of Bill 64 (2016) CD1 relating to motor vehicle registration. The industry “wish list” for the modification of the existing Fleet-Dealer Registration process for new motor vehicles, to be able to accommodate registration and ownership transfer of used motor vehicles, which are free of “stoppers” and already registered in the dealers’ names, would ideally be a system that would: (1) have third-party service providers who would train dealership title office personnel, help equip and service the system for dealerships on a 24/7 basis, thus relieving the counties from any responsibility for keeping the system running smoothly at dealerships, (2) record transfer of the current plates on a used vehicle from the dealer to the new owner (3) have secure online access to the DMV system, or have a separate screen-scrape (air gap) system, that allows dealerships through bonded vendors to edit data fields including: UÊ registered owner’s name field UÊ registered owner’s address field(s) UÊ lienholder name field UÊ lienholder address field UÊ vehicle inspection field UÊ date of sale field UÊ odometer notation field UÊ and perhaps several other existing data fields (4) have online payment capability through ACH (5) have the capability to print a vehicle inspection sticker (6) have the capability for the dealer to send any needed documents to DMV digitally (7) have eSignature documents, sent digitally, carry the same legal authority as hard-copy documents (8) have an online signature library for all counties to compare signatures with one Power of Attorney that is good in all counties. (9) Have the ability to electronically surrender plates, or put plates in storage for a vehicle that will be put in storage or scrapped. Director Wong, the above is the information provided to HADA so far for transmission to your office in response to your request for “wish list” information by March 10. NOTE: TAGS owner, Donna Smallwood’s one-page summary of the desired EVR process, sent earlier to you by Donna, is also attached. HADA dealers much appreciate the opportunity to work with the City and County’s Department of Motor Vehicles, your office at DIT, Councilmember Pine and her office staff, and Hawaii’s experienced third-party service providers of information technology services to create an online registration and ownership transfer system that will allow commerce to flow smoothly and efficiently in Hawaii, and our dealerships’ customers to quickly possess the documents needed to legally operate their vehicles on Hawaii’s roadways.

See if you can save money with time-of-use rates Hawaiian Electric now offers a way you may be able to save money on your electric bill if you can use more electricity during the day – when solar power is abundant – and less in the evening or at night. How much? It depends. The more you shift your electric use to mid-day from the evening peak or overnight, the more you may save. How? Simple things like installing a water heater timer or doing laundry at mid-day on the weekend can help. If you run a pool pump or charge an electric vehicle, doing it at mid-day may save, too.
