New Drivers

New Tennessee drivers must take a vision, written and road test to obtain a driver license. Those under 18 years of age are required to have a valid Tennessee learners permit for at least six months. You are also required to bring proof of name and residency. A complete list of acceptable documents can be found in the $CSLINK or online at the Tennessee DMV website.

You can obtain a Class PD (learner’s permit) if you are 15 years or older and have passed your vision and written tests. You may operate a vehicle with a licensed driver who is 21 or older.
