West Knoxville Driver Service Center Changing

The Tennessee Department of Safety Driver Service Center in West Knoxville, located at 430 Montbrook Lane, is no longer a full service driver service center.  Beginning January 3, 2012, this location will only offer Tennessee Driver’s License Reinstatement services. This applies to those reinstating their license as a result of a Tennessee Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Conviction or Violation of the Tennessee Implied Consent Law (Chemical Test Refusal).

The center will also continue to offer photo ID’s for voting purposes.  However, those who wish to obtain a copy of a driving record, or even have their driver’s license renewed, must do so at another location.

Knoxville TN 37919
(865) 690-6393
Fax: (865) 690-6530
Services: Driver License Reinstatement, Photo ID’s for voting purposes

As a result of this change, Knoxville will now have only one full service location:
