Registration Renewal Reminder Postcard

Dec 22nd, 2020

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.
