Berkeley, CA asked in Traffic Tickets for Tennessee

Q: Statute of limitations for speeding, no insurance, no registration tickets from 2012 in TN?

I am trying to renew my DL in CA after living here 4.5 yrs. TN has put a hold on my DL renewal. Found out it’s from tickets that I don’t remember getting in 2012 for going 65 in 55mph on interstate, no insurance, and expired registration. Why am I just now finding out about these unpaid tickets? And what is the statute of limitations?

A: If the Charges were initiated within one year of the incidents, then they were timely prosecuted. Hire a competent attorney to run down each Citation and dispose of each as painlessly as possible. You want Dismissals or Paid In Full Receipts to show the Tennessee Department of Safety the Charges are no longer outstanding (and for DOS to also tell California).
