Driver License Appointments in Tennessee

Tennessee’s Department of Safety (DOS) requires you to make an appointment to take your road or driving test before you receive your drivers license. Telephone or visit the nearest Tennessee (TN) driver licensing station to schedule the driving portion of your license test.

Most stations are open Monday through Friday. Dial (866) 849-3548 to inquire about office locations and hours of operation.

You can also schedule your driving test online by clicking “Schedule Road Test” at the DOS website. It is listed on the right side of the page under “Agency Services.”

Arrive to the TN driver licensing station early. If you arrive to the station late you might have to reschedule your driving test. Before you take your driving test, you must take and pass a vision screening and a written examination.

Material covered on the written and driving tests is included in the TN driver’s manual. Download the manual from the DOS website and take a practice test before you take the written and driving examinations. This will increase your chances of passing the tests so that you can get your driver license as soon as possible.
