TENNESSEE -

The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security says to beware of websites selling renewal assistance.

The Driver Services Division of the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security wants to remind drivers that the only website for driver license/ID renewals is the state's official site, TN.gov.

Other websites that offer driver-related services, such as renewal assistance, non-certified driving history, and practice tests for a fee, are not affiliated with the State of Tennessee. The Driver Services division receives many calls from citizens who went to one of these sites, entered a credit card and received a document that contains the same information that is available for free at the the Driver Services website. "We want to get the word out that it is not necessary to buy a guide or other materials to be able to renew online," said Assistant Commissioner Lori Bullard. "We offer online services and a free iPhone/iPad practice test app right here on TN.gov, because it offers the most convenience for our customers."

In addition to renewals, TN.gov is also the official source for ordering a duplicate license/ID, getting a certified copy of your driving record, and paying reinstatement fees.

The suite of Driver Services and mobile app was developed by NIC, Inc., Tennessee’s eGovernment partner since 2000.
