DMV Services in Tennessee

In Tennessee, licensing and driver services are handled by two different departments. Your motor vehicle needs are handled by the Department of Revenue, and all licensing duties are handled by the Department of Safety and Homeland Security. It is simple to get whatever you need because both departments have offices across the state.

Getting Your License in Tennessee

There are Driver Services Centers of the Department of Safety and Homeland Security all around the state. While some of the locations are full-service stations, others only offer a limited number of services. Some simply provide renewals and duplicates, while others provide everything but reinstatements. 

You can complete some tasks online if you don't want to go to a Driver Services Center. With online services, you can:

  • Renew your license
  • Order a duplicate license
  • Get a reissue after your license has been reinstated
  • Change your address
  • Get your driving history

Making an Appointment for a Road Skills Test

Make sure you schedule an appointment before visiting one of the service centers to take a road skills test. You can speed up the process by scheduling your appointment online. On the day of your appointment, you just need to show up and take your test.

Motor Vehicle Services

For titles, tags, and registration needs, go to the County Clerk's office. You should check with your local office before visiting since County Clerks have different operating hours.

How to Reach Driver or Vehicle Services

You can get in touch with the Department of Revenue or the Department of Safety and Homeland Security if you have any questions or concerns.
