Where can I get a Hawaii license plate for my collection?
The City and County of Honolulu\'s Division of Motor Vehicles and Licensing sells a Hawaii state license plate with the rainbow design and with \"SAMPLE\" as the license number. The cost is $10.00, and only checks are accepted. To request a sample license plate, send a written note with the enclosed check made out to \"City and County of Honolulu\" to:
Division of Motor Vehicles and Licensing
If you don\'t want a plate that reads \"SAMPLE,\" you can always hit the auctions at eBay, where license plate collectors have a thriving trade. A search for \"Hawaii license plates\" will almost always net at least a handful of items.
Finally, our own Mitchell tells us that the Rock Island Cafe in King\'s Village in Waikiki sells real Hawaii plates right out of a box. While they don\'t appear to sell them online, you could give them a call at (808) 923-8033.
