JACKSON, Tenn. — The driver services centers in Dresden and Whiteville will close next month and merge with centers in surrounding cities, according to the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security. Both centers will close Nov. 6 and merge with the other centers as part of an effort to improve effectiveness and efficiency in the state’s driver’s license services, according to a release. The staff positions also will be transferred to one or more of the centers, the release states. The Dresden Driver Services Center, located at 8595 Highway 22, will merge with the driver services centers in Paris, Trenton and Union City. The Whiteville Driver Services Center, located at 200 Harris Street, will merge with the driver services centers in Oakland, Savannah and Jackson. The remaining centers are open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and are full-time service centers for offering driver’s license and identification card issuance, motor vehicle records, vision testing, knowledge and skills testing, and handgun permits. The Union City center also serves as a license reinstatement center.
