TN Teens Can Now Take Part of Driver’s Test at Home

For teenagers between the ages of 15 and 17, the written portion of the test will now be given online instead of at a Driver Services Center.

Teenagers between the ages of 15 and 17 in Tennessee are now able to take the written portion of their driver’s license test at home, the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security announced Monday.

In a press release, the department said teenagers between 15 and 17 can now take the written portion of the test online under a proctor’s supervision (parent/legal guardian) via the Tennessee Proctor IDentification (PID) app.

“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.”

What is the Tennessee Proctor Identification (PID) App?

The Tennessee Proctor Identification (PID) App allows eligible Tennesseans to securely proctor online knowledge tests by obtaining a highly secure personal identification via the Proctor Identification (PID) App. Personal identification information must be registered by verifying themselves against their Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security (TDOSHS) record.

How to get a Tennessee Proctor Identification (PID) App

In the Apple/Google Play store, type Tennessee Proctor ID, look for the Tennessee PID app icon and follow the steps to download/install the PID app.
