Hawaii driver’s licenses haven’t garnered this much attention since McLovin made his debut.
Now the Hawaii Department of Transportation is under the microscope for shortening a woman’s 35-letter-long last name.
For the past 20 years, Janice “Lokelani” Keihanaikukauakahihuliheekahaunaele (watch the KHON2 video to hear it pronounced — expertly, we might add) has had to carry two IDs — a state ID card and a driver’s license. Her Hawaii driver’s license dropped one letter in her last name and didn’t even include her first or middle names. In the past, the governor’s office made a special adjustment to accommodate her full name on her state ID, but when that expired in May, her new state ID came back incomplete, just like her driver’s license.
