Center is the first in 30 years to offer brand new accommodations in Hamblen County

NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security announces the current Morristown Driver Services Center will close and relocate to a new center to better serve the citizens of Hamblen County. The new location will be located at 1551 East Morris Boulevard, east of Liberty Road.

The Morristown Driver Services Center, located on Buffalo Trail, will stop serving customers at the close of business on Thursday, February 23, and reopen in the new location on Monday, February 27 at 8:30 a.m. The new center will provide a larger space to accommodate the growth in the area, and offer comfortable furnishings. This center will also have a separate testing room, iPads, and the new Alico self- service check in Kiosk.

“Driver Services Centers are constantly being updated by the state to provide a better customer service,” Department of Safety and Homeland Security Commissioner David W. Purkey said. “Obviously, Morristown continues to serve as a regional hub for folks in the Lakeway Region who need in person transactions that can’t be comfortably handled on-line. I challenge the staff here at this new Center to serve our customers with a smile. I encourage citizens with renewal needs only, to visit our partner at the Hamblen County Clerk’s satellite office on Davy Crockett Parkway for even quicker service.”

The new Morristown center is open from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (EST), Monday through Friday. This facility is a full-service center handling driver license issuance, identification card issuance, motor vehicle records, vision testing, knowledge and skills testing, handgun permit applications, voter registration, and organ donor considerations.

There will be grand opening on Friday, March 3, at 11:30 (EST). The public and media are invited to attend.

Using diversified program offerings, the Division is able to provide various services to Tennessee Citizens.
