A: TN can not make you pay the VA tickets but TN can keep you suspended from driving in their state (and other states if you have a TN license) until you do. This is regardless of whether you can be reinstated anywhere else. You should just man up, be responsible and pay what you own instead of trying to find ways to avoid it.
