Franklin Driver Services Center Reopens with Upgrades

The remodeled Franklin Driver Services Center is reopening with enhanced facilities.

The Franklin Driver Services Center, operated by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security, is set to reopen its doors to the public on Monday, May 13. This reopening comes after the center, located at 3830 Carothers Parkway, was temporarily closed for a planned remodeling phase starting in November.

The renovation of the center includes several upgrades aimed at improving the overall customer experience. Visitors to the center will notice fresh paint and updated flooring throughout the facility, creating a more welcoming environment. Additionally, the center has expanded its parking area to accommodate more visitors and increased the counter space available to serve the public more efficiently.

The Franklin Driver Services Center offers a wide range of services to Tennesseans. These services include the issuance of driver licenses and identification cards, the processing of REAL IDs, and the administration of vision, knowledge, and skills tests required for driver licensing. The center also provides access to motor vehicle records, handgun permit applications, voter registration services, and organ/tissue donor registration. These services are available during the center’s regular operating hours, which are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT.

With these enhancements, the Franklin Driver Services Center aims to provide a more efficient and pleasant experience for all visitors seeking driver and vehicle-related services in Tennessee.
