We know how to help you save some of your valuable time. When it is time to renew your driver’s license you can now call ahead and make an appointment for a specific time. Or you can sign up on line at: www.tn.gov/safety/driverservices.
I called ahead and asked if I needed an appointment and was told it was not necessary, so I went without an appointment.
Upon arrival, after checking in, I noticed people driving up and they were immediately admitted ahead of us. I asked the attendant why they were allowed to go to the front of the line and was told they had made an advance reservation.
And if you are planning to obtain the REAL ID license you must take certain documents with you. They require proof of citizenship, proof of Tennessee residence and proof of your Social Security number.
The types of documents you can take with you to prove your citizenship include a birth certificate, unexpired U.S. passport, a valid permanent residence card. To prove your social security number take either your social security card, W-2 or 1099 forms within the last year. To prove your address or residence you will need to bring two documents such as a copy of your utility bill, a bank statement, a mortgage statement or current Tennessee registration.
