Hazardous Weather, Feb. 16-19

Feb 15th, 2021

As a result of Metro’s announcement and out of an abundance of caution, the Davidson County Clerk’s Office will be closed February 16-19.  We will follow Metro’s lead as it relates to the closure of non-essential buildings, for the safety of our employees and the public, and encourage residents to stay home safely.  Any questions can be directed here on our website.

Registration Renewal Reminder Postcard

Starting in January 2021, the TN Department of Revenue will send postcards to motor vehicle registrants to remind them of upcoming renewal dates. The postcards will replace traditional letters and will reduce state mailing expenses by an estimated $500,000.

You can find more information about renewals, as well as a sample postcard, on the department’s website by clicking here.

Emissions tests are still required in Davidson County.  More information can be found by clicking here.
