The Driver Services division of the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security wants to remind drivers that the only website for driver license/ID renewals is the state’s official site, TN.gov.
Other websites that offer driver-related services, such as renewal assistance, non-certified driving history, and practice tests for a fee are not affiliated with the State of Tennessee. The Driver Services division receives many calls from citizens who went to one of these sites, entered a credit card and received a document that contains the same information that is available for free at the Driver Services website.
“We want to get the word out that it is not necessary to buy a guide or other materials to be able to renew online,” said Assistant Commissioner Lori Bullard. “We offer online services and a free iPhone/iPad practice test app right here on TN.gov because it offers the most convenience for our customers.”
In addition to renewals, TN.gov is also the official source for ordering a duplicate license/ID, getting a certified copy of your driving record, and paying reinstatement fees.
The suite of Driver Services and mobile app was developed by NIC, Inc., Tennessee’s eGovernment partner since 2000.
