My experience to get a new Tennessee drivers license/Real ID was fairly simple after I finally got the correct documents gathered for my third attempt. I was able to make an appointment for a Friday (busier time) about 3 days ahead of time. When I entered the facility it was very crowded but once I used the QR code to check in I was called to a counter 10 minutes earlier than my actual appointment. The employee who helped me was very pleasant and helped me sign up for organ donation as well as registration to vote. She did ask me if I had filled out an application online before my appointment, but I don't remember that being an option, so maybe that needs to be made more clear? The entire process only took 20 minutes.

Most DMV’s I’ve been to is either the waiting line is too long or the people the helps you are serious and don’t smile what makes Savannah TN DMV different is they were happy to serve the people and the waiting is not bad.
