A: You need to call the General Sessions Court for whatever County you got cited in. Then inquire about your Citation. There is no DOT in Tennessee, so it was some other agency. Read your Ticket verbatim, then talk to the Clerk about what to do about it. If possible, go to Court to see if there is a possibility of Dismissal through Driving School, payment of costs, etc. You are waiting way too long to take care of something that might suspend your License. Call tomorrow.
