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: 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 search service.
“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 entities.”
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.
MyPVL 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.
