Those Driver License Examiners were hired and assigned specifically for the high-volume Driver Services Centers.

Officials said their training is complete and the new workers are now in place at those centers now.

“We are constantly looking to identify vacancies at high volume areas and fill them as quickly as possible,” said Wes Moser, Director of communications with the TN Department of Safety and Homeland Security.

“Right now, it’s way too early to even have the data to see the impact they have had,” he said.

Real ID is required for all Tennesseeans by Oct. 1, 2020, if they want to board a domestic flight or access federal buildings.
