Hawaii Vehicle Registration Fees Favor the Rich

A Porsche 911 will cost you $209 in yearly vehicle registration fees. But a Ford F-150? Try $329.

Why the difference?

It’s because Hawaii is one of 13 states that collects an annual vehicle registration tax based on weight. So the 2,244-pound difference between the Porsche and the Ford means the truck owner will pay roughly $120 more in fees each year.
