The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security announced that more than 18,000 Tennessee teenagers between 15-17 years old have taken the driver’s license knowledge test online since it became an option three months ago on May 16. The test may be administered in the comfort of a home 24/7 which offers convenient hours that don’t interfere with work or school.
Teenagers between the ages of 15 to 17 may now take their written knowledge test online under a proctor's supervision (parent/legal guardian) via the Tennessee Proctor IDentification app. Those taking the online test will be required to verify their identity and agree to be monitored throughout the exam. The test can be attempted twice online. If someone fails twice, they will have to go to a Driver Services Center for future testing.

"The department seeks to find innovative ways to serve Tennesseans better," said TDOSHS Commissioner Jeff Long. "This new testing option will reduce processing time and the number of customers at Driver Services Centers while providing flexible hours for the test taker and their parent/guardian."
