Louisville, KY asked in DUI / DWI for Tennessee

Q: Is Tennessee allowed to revoke/suspend another states' license?

Second question: Why do I have a Tennessee DL/ ID Number if I've never lived in that state?

I received my conviction there however, this doesn't make any sense. I have paid the courts and completed all requirements for my conviction. I also paid a reinstatement fee to the state of TN. If I paid a reinstatement fee to the state of TN after I finished everything for the courts and paid everything in full then why am I still being forced to fulfill reinstatement requirements for TN? My home state will not give me my license back until TN releases me. I've never been a resident of that state. Please HELP!!! I need to drive again, it's been over 2 years.

A: I am not sure of your problem. But you will have to take this up with the Department of Safety, which you apparently have just touched the surface of. Hire a competent attorney to look into this. It does not appear you will be able to do this without counsel, all needed documents and whatever monies are required.

A: And no, TN cannot revoke the license of another State. The issuing authority for the license is the one that does that.
