State officials are giving Tennessee residents an online option to access driving records. The Department of Safety and Homeland Security has launched an online service that allows people to download or print copies of their official driving records by going to www.tn.gov/safety.

A two dollar convenience fee will be assessed to each online transaction, in addition to the five dollar state fee set by the Tennessee General Assembly for a copy of a driver record.
The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security will be taking part in the Interstate 40 Challenge: The Drive toward Zero Fatalities. The traffic enforcement campaign will run through the Thanksgiving holiday period. The challenge was issued to seven other state police or highway patrol agencies of increased patrols along the I-40 corridor to help achieve the safest possible holiday travel. Each agency has been asked to assign a state trooper every 20 miles of I-40 from noon to midnight on Wednesday and from 9am to 9pm on Sunday. There were zero traffic fatalities on Tennessee's Interstate 40 during last year's 102-hour Thanksgiving period. However, eight people were killed in vehicular crashes across the state during that same time period in 2012. Three of the fatalities occurred in alcohol-related crashes, while two of those killed were not wearing seat belts.
