In Tennessee, if the driver holds an intermediate license, who must wear a seatbelt or suitable child restraint?


Seatbelts save lives. In Tennessee, every occupant of a vehicle driven by an intermediate license holder is required to wear a seatbelt or suitable child restraint. However if the driver holds a regular driver license, rear-seat passengers who are at least 17 years old are not required to wear seatbelts. ["It's the Law," B-2.
