UT has a new campus driver’s license kiosk that allows Tennessee citizens to replace an existing driver’s license or state identification card. The kiosk takes a picture and uses facial recognition to verify the image on record. It processes a credit card payment and prints an interim license, which is valid for twenty days. The new secure license or ID card is mailed to the applicant’s home.

The kiosk is accessible from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday on the ground floor of Thompson-Boling Arena. City metered parking is located just outside the entrance closest to the kiosk.

Department of Safety and Homeland Security officials contacted UT about hosting a kiosk to take advantage of the large student and pedestrian population on and near campus and downtown.

UT’s kiosk is the third in Knoxville. Additional kiosks are based in Driver’s Services Centers in the Knoxville area. There are now forty kiosks at various locations across Tennessee.
