REAL ID

We are proud to announce that we are now offering an additional service to the public through our partnership with the Tennessee Dept. of Safety and Homeland Security. We now offer the renewal and replacement of REAL ID compliant Driver licenses.

The REAL ID act was enacted by Congress in an effort to prevent terrorism and reduce identity theft. After October 2020, you will need to have a REAL ID when boarding commercial flights within the United States, visiting certain federal buildings (only the ones you currently have to show ID), or if you wish to enter nuclear facilities.
