Self-Service Kiosk in County Clerk’s Office to be down for Maintenance through Monday

The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security has announced that beginning January 4, 2016, Tennesseans will be able to renew their driver license every eight years instead of five years. The change will include all classifications of driver licenses and identification licenses.
To make the conversion, the self-service Kiosk in the DeKalb County Clerk’s Office will be unavailable due to scheduled system maintenance from Wednesday, December 30 at 4:30 p.m. through Monday, January 4, 2016 8:00 a.m. according to County Clerk James L. (Jimmy) Poss.
The DeKalb County Clerk’s Office will be open Thursday, December 31 but will be closed Friday and Saturday, January 1 & 2.
The legislation to increase the renewal years was proposed during the 2015 legislative session. Senator Nicely and Representative Goins introduced the bill to help decrease wait times and improve customer traffic flow at driver services centers.
“This is another step to improve the quality of our driver services and help better serve the existing population as well as plan for future growth here in Tennessee,” Commissioner Bill Gibbons said. “It’s our goal to enhance our driver services and provide convenient options for our customers.”
The new eight year license will include all forms of driver licenses and identification licenses, including commercial driver license and motorcycle license.
“We are pleased with the support of the Governor and the members of the General Assembly who continue to work with our department to improve our driver services division to better serve our growing state,” Gibbons said.
The mission of the Driver Services Division is to promote safe, knowledgeable, and competent drivers in the State of Tennessee. For a full listing of center and kiosk locations, visit our website at and click on our Driver Services page.
