NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Two busy Nashville driver services centers closed and are merging into one larger center in south Nashville.
The Centennial center at 6604 Centennial Boulevard and South East center at 1601 Murfreesboro Road stopped serving customers Wednesday.
The new Hickory Hollow Center at 5216 Hickory Hollow Parkway will open Monday, Jan. 4.
State officials say the new, larger center is part of an effort to improve effectiveness and efficiency with the state’s driver license services.
Staff from the two locations will be transferred to the new center.
“For years we have faced concerns about the size and conditions of centers in Davidson County,” Commissioner Bill Gibbons said. “We understand those concerns. This new, larger, and improved center will result in improved services for Nashville area citizens.”
The center will be equipped to serve all customers in an efficient and timely manner.
The Hickory Hollow Center will serve customers from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
This facility is a full-service center offering driver license, identification license, motor vehicle records, vision testing, knowledge and skills testing, and handgun carry permits.
The Hickory Hollow center will also serve as a driver license reinstatement center.
