Replacing your driver's license in Tennessee

To drive legally in the state of Tennessee, you need to own a valid drivers license. If your drivers license was recently damaged, lost or stolen due to an unfortunate event, you will need to seek a replacement Tennessee driver license immediately. Driving without a license is a punishable offense in Tennessee. Luckily, you can replace a drivers license at the {DMV-C} in person for a fee, and get back out on the road again. However, if you are currently traveling out-of-state, obtaining a replacement Tennessee drivers license at the {DMV-C} may not be the most convenient option. Depending on how you choose to get a drivers license replacement in Tennessee, you may have to wait for a new card. Whether you are traveling, or waiting for a replacement license to arrive at home, it's wise to have a photocopy of your valid license handy, in case of emergency.
