TENNESSEE

Driving in Tennessee

Tennessee has an extensive system of roads and highways that are well numbered and clearly marked with directional signs. Strictly enforced speed limits are signposted and vary from 15mph in school zones to 35mph in built up areas, and 55mph or 70mph on open roads.  Driving while under the influence of alcohol is a major offence.

A full valid UK or EU license is all that is required to drive in Tennessee. An International Driving Permit on its own is not acceptable.

Motorbikes in Tennessee

Crash helmets must meet approval of the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators. They are required to be used on public roads and highways. 

Mandatory Seat Belt Laws in Tennessee 

Drive and front-seat passengers must wear seat belts and children under 4 years of age must be restrained in a suitable car seat.
