How do you replace or renew learners permits in Tennessee? Tennessee

Both are simple processes; please see below for details.

Replace TN Learners Permit

Go to a driver service center, and bring the same documentation you used to apply for your driving permit. In other words:

  • Acceptable primary and secondary identification documents.
  • Acceptable proof of U.S. citizenship or authorized stay.
  • Two acceptable proofs of residency.
You'll also need to give your Social Security number, or provide an affidavit stating you haven't been issued a number. The drivers permit replacement fee varies, but usually it's $8.

Check to see if you're eligible to obtain a duplicate permit online through the Tennessee Department of Safety site.

Renew TN Drivers Permit

Permits expire after one year, which should give you plenty of time to accumulate enough experience to pass your road test and gain your drivers license.

Keep in mind it's illegal to drive with an expired permit, so visit a driver service center with your current permit to get it renewed.

Additional Info

Know anyone applying for a permit? Suggest they take a practice permit test before doing so, as it increases the odds they'll pass the official exam on the first try.
