Restricted License Information

Under Tennessee law, individuals may be eligible under certain circumstances for a restricted license. The individual’s privilege to drive cannot be under revocation, suspension, or cancellation for any other reason in Tennessee or any other state. A restricted license cannot be issued for a Class A, Class B, or Class C license to operate a commercial vehicle. If you have never been licensed in Tennessee, you will be required to meet all requirements of a New Resident in addition to all other requirements. The following links will provide more information about the circumstances in which you can apply for a restricted license, requirements for obtaining a restricted license, and common reasons for being denied a restricted license.
