TDOS Offers New Online Features for License Reinstatement

On December 2, 2020, the Tennessee Department of Safety (TDOS) announced new online services available for those with suspended or revoked driver licenses.  Although not available for all drivers, many can now complete the entire reinstatement process without visiting a Driver Service Center in person.  In addition to the online option, TDOS also offers the use of self-service kiosks and iPads at Driver Service Centers.  However, TDOS notes that not all drivers are eligible to use online, self-service kiosk, or iPad for driver license reissuance.  If you are not able to complete the reinstatement process online, you will be required to visit a Reinstatement Center

One component of reinstating a driver license using online is the submission of the required compliance documents.  The required documentation is dependent upon the cause of the license revocation (e.g., Driving Under the Influence, Implied Consent Violation, Failure to Satisfy a Traffic Citation, Failure to Show Proof of Financial Responsibility, etc.).  A list of the violations that trigger license revocation and the corresponding reinstatement requirements can be found here:  Likewise, a list and description of the compliance documents can be found here:

Detailed information about how to pay reinstatement fees and how to submit the required compliance documents can be found by visiting:  A review of our prior blog post, TN Driver License Reinstatement—Navigating the TDOS Website, may be helpful when accessing the online services.
