How to Register a Car in Tennessee

registration tennessee

Most people rely on their car to get them to and from work on a daily basis. Making a move to a new area will bring about a lot of changes. The first thing that you will need to do when moving to Tennessee is to get your car registered with the Tennessee Department of Revenue. In order to get this done, you will need to visit the local county clerk’s office. Getting the car registered will require you to bring in a few different things. Here is a list of what you will need to bring to the county clerk’s office to get your car registered:

  • You will have to submit paperwork saying the car passed an emissions test
  • Present your out of state registration
  • Show your out of state title
  • Provide proof that you are a Tennessee resident, such as a bill with your name on it
  • Pay all of the fees

If you are a Tennessee resident and have bought a new car, you will have to go in person to the county clerk’s office. Regardless of if the car is bought at a dealership or from an individual, it will need to be registered. This is what you will need to bring to get the new car registered:

  • Have the Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin
  • Provide the new vehicle invoice from the dealership where it was purchased
  • Give the county clerk the current registration from your old vehicle
  • Have proof of residency

If the car that has been purchased is used, here are some of the things that you will need to bring when you get it registered:

  • A valid title with your name on it
  • The odometer disclosure statement
  • The registration from your old vehicle
  • A Tennessee driver’s license

The fees that you have to pay for registration vary by county, which is why you will need to call the county clerk in your area.

If you live in the following counties, you will need to have an emissions test performed before getting approved for registration:

  • Hamilton County
  • Rutherford County
  • Sumner County
  • Williamson County
  • Wilson County
  • Davidson County
