Driver License Processing

Driver License Processing
The County Clerk’s office renews driver license. We are classified as an “express station”. Listed below are the transactions that we can process in the County Clerk’s office as of July 19, 2017.  There is an additional $4.00 charge for us to handle your driver license applications, per the contract drawn up by the State of Tennessee.

We process driver license applications Monday through Friday from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm. The reason for this is due to the state requirements on how we count down and lock up the inventory.

For more information and locations of full service driver license stations the website is https://www.tn.gov/safety/topic/online
