HONOLULU (AP) — The Hawaii DmiV appointment process for drivers is on hold until next week as a Zika outbreak affects the state.
Brian Schweitzer says the appointment process has been frozen to help address concerns.
A state spokeswoman says the freeze is temporary.
Honda has already started hiring people to help manage the state’s DMIVs, but a spokeswoman says that could be temporary.
The company is working with the state on getting DMIv drivers certified, but they are still awaiting that certification.
The state has already signed up about 1,200 people to work on the DMIVS.
