The Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs (DCCA)
Professional and Vocational Licensing Division (PVL) is announcing the
launch of the online Self-Printing service at MyPVL (https://pvl.ehawaii.gov/mypvl).
Effective April 18, 2019, License Pocket ID cards and Wall Certificates
are now available for immediate download and printing at no cost to
licensees. The updated pocket ID card provides additional consumer
protection with a QR code design imprint, in which consumers can scan to
verify the licensee’s current status through the linked PVL public
“We are always seeking to expand access and service to our consumers and
licensees,” said Charlene Tamanaha, Licensing Administrator for PVL. “It
is our goal to continue to provide better service and streamline the
licensing process to support Hawaii’s 150,000 licensed individuals and
MyPVL was created in partnership with Hawaii Information Consortium,
LLC, the official Internet portal manager of eHawaii.gov.
PVL licenses 51 different professions and vocations, with 20,000 new
applicants and 60,000 plus license renewals, plus thousands of address
or name changes annually. Each transaction would either result to
printing and mailing of a wall certificate and/or a pocket ID card. Over
100,000 pocket ID cards were printed and mailed by PVL annually. In an
effort to achieve the State’s paperless initiative and reduce costs, PVL
has discontinued the printing and mailing of these documents.
This service was launched as part of the eHawaii State Portal Program.
Pursuant to chapter 27G, Hawaii Revised Statutes, the Portal Program is
overseen by the Access Hawaii Committee, which collaborates with
provider Hawaii Information Consortium (HIC) along with state and county
agencies to continually identify new online services to be added to the
portal. For more information, visit portal.ehawaii.gov.
