Tennessee DMV Locations

Locate your nearest Tennessee drivers license locations and vehicle registration offices using our map of locations below. While many people refer to all driving and vehicle service offices as the Tennessee DMV, Tennessee’s services are split between two departments. The Department of Revenue handling vehicle duties and the Department of Safety and Homeland Security covering issues related to Tennessee driver’s licenses and state IDs. Before visiting in person, we recommend making a phone call to confirm hours and services.

We strive to provide accurate information, so if you find incorrect information on our map or elsewhere on this site please contact us and we will make any necessary corrections.

If for some reason the map is not working for you or if you prefer to have a text search feature, we have also included this simple table listing of all Tennessee DMV locations.  This table lists the exact same information in the map but in a more searchable format.
