Driver ed designed with you in mind

When teens are first learning to drive, they are highly receptive to important messages about the dangers of unsafe driving and driving while intoxicated. That is why it is so important for parents to get involved at this initial stage to ensure proper and thorough education to help set ground rules and instill good driving habits, as their teen takes on the responsibility of operating a motor vehicle.

Procedures for the Tennessee Online Drivers Ed Program

The starting point to enroll for the program is filing an application form for the Tennessee Learner’s Permit. This permit is also available for youngsters aged fifteen years and above. This said, you must meet some conditions to be eligible for the Tennessee Learner’s Permit. Among them are:

  • A Minor Affidavit and Cancellation form signed by your guardian or parent
  • Certificate of Compulsory School Attendance Form, which serves as Proof of Enrollment. This form must be signed by a school official and has to be valid for 30 days
  • Proof of US Citizenship or Lawful Permanent Resident Status
  • Evidence of Identity
  • Confirmation of Social Security Number

The moment you are done filing the application form, you should submit it to your local Tennessee Driver Services Center, and your parent/guardian may accompany you. In addition to this, you will be needed to take a written and vision test. Only after surviving these tests will you be issued with Tennessee Learner’s Permit, which is legitimate for one year. Keep in mind that you will be required to practice driving in the presence of a certified driver, who is above 21 years. When driving, it is a requirement by law that you carry your Tennessee Learner’s Permit and that all passengers fasten their seat belts. After having the Learner Permit for 180 days, you will be eligible for the next stage in the Tennessee online drivers education plan.

The Tennessee Intermediate or Provisional License

The following restrictions are associated with the Intermediate License:

  • You and all your passengers must wear seat belts
  • No using your cell phone or any other hand-held device while driving
  • Have at most one passenger unless you are accompanied by a licensed driver of 21 years and above
  • No driving between 11PM and 6AM except when you are driving to and from your job or school and you must have written proof of this, or hunting/fishing 4AM to 6AM, for which you will require a license.

Upon turning 17 and having your Restricted Intermediate License for one year, you can apply for the Tennessee Intermediate Unrestricted License. For this license, you must not have more than six points on your driving record or more than two safety belt violations. You need to have not been involved in an at-fault accident. The moment you turn 18, you can smell driving freedom because you are eligible for the Tennessee Regular Driver License.

Tennessee Motor Vehicle Insurance Responsibility Laws

Having your Tennessee Limited Provisional Driver License is merely a starting point to your driving freedom. Before you can reap all the benefits that come with driving in Tennessee, you must abide by liability insurance law. The least amount for liability insurance coverage is:

  • $25,000 physical injury for one person
  • $50,000 bodily injury for at least two people
  • $15,000 for property destroyed in a single accident

In case you are involved in an accident, and you are found to have been driving without the compulsory liability insurance coverage, then your Tennessee Driver License could be suspended.

Text Messaging, Drunk Driving and cell Phone Laws in Tennessee

It is essential that you familiarize yourself with Tennessee drunk driving, cell phone and text messaging laws as a teenage driver. There is no tolerance for drunk driving in Tennessee as is the case with most states. If you are convicted of a DUI or DWI in Tennessee, you face more penalties than the ones mentioned below. For your initial conviction of a Tennessee DUI of.08, the following penalties apply:

  • One year Driver License suspension
  • Fine of $350 to $1,500
  • Jail term of 48 hours to 11 months
  • Community service
  • Possible installation of an Ignition Interlock Device
  • Potential Alcohol Safety DUI program.

Further Tennessee DUI and DWI convictions will automatically result to severe penalties such as Driver License revocation, increased jail time, fines, and community service. At present, cell phone and hands-free devices usage are prohibited in Tennessee, and the fine for violating this law is $100 and delay in graduating for the license program. In addition to court expenses, drivers found text messaging are required to pay a $50 fine.

Enrolling in a Tennessee online drivers education course is the gateway to having your driver’s license. Visit the Tennessee Teen Driver Safety website to learn more about the Tennessee online drivers ed program.
