How To Obtain Your Tennessee Driving Record

You can get your Tennessee driving record by ordering it from the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security. You can submit an order for your driving record if you have a Tennessee driver’s license. You can send in this order either in the mail or online. You can also receive a copy of your driver record by going in person to a driver service center.

Applying to Get the Driving Record

You can order your driving record (also called an MVR) online and many people find this to be the most convenient way of getting their driving record. You will need to fill in your driver’s license number, birth date, Social Security number, and name. You’ll also need to use Adobe Reader and the latest version of Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Safari as your browser when ordering your driving record online. You’ll need a printer if you want to print a copy of your record. Otherwise, you can save it to your computer.

You can also request your driving record in person at a center or by mailing a request to the

Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security

MVR Request PO BOX 945
Nashville, TN 37202

You need to list your name, driver’s license number, birth date, and Social Security number to receive your MVR by mail. Mail requests will require about two weeks.

Required Documentation

If you go in person, you’ll need to present your most recently issued Tennessee driver’s license. You can also authorize another person to receive a copy of your MVR on your behalf; in that case, they must bring a signed and notarized authorization from you to receive the copy.

Fees for Getting Your Driving Record and Payment Methods

The cost for obtaining your driving record is $5, regardless of whether you obtain it by mail, in-person or online. The payment method differs, however. If you order online, you’ll need to pay with a Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover credit card or check card. Prepaid cards are not allowed.

If you obtain the record in-person or by mail, you will pay with a check or money order.

Things to Know About Your Tennessee Driving Record

You should keep in mind several facts when requesting your driving record. The first is that federal Driver Privacy laws prevent the release of identifying information from driver’s license and vehicle registration records unless you submit a form requesting that your records be open. For this reason, a copy of your driving record will not show your address.


The second is that the record is an official MVR regardless of whether you obtain it online, by mail, or in person. The record will contain either three years or 10 years of your driving history.
