You can access all Tennessee Codes using LexisNexis, including vehicle codes.
Being familiar with, or at least being able to research, vehicle codes can come in handy should you need to find out about laws that pertain to the roadways or driving.
LexisNexis may seem a bit tricky to use, at first, but they provide complete instructions on how to view all codes as well as search for a particular code.
Unfortunately, due to the way LexisNexis works, we can't provide you with direct links to specific codes; however, we can provide you with the codes to which you should refer.

Whenever you need or want to check the status of your driver’s license, you can order a driving record report. This record will spell out if your driver’s license is currently valid. Should your license have been revoked or suspended, the report will indicate that according to what’s on record at the DOS. This report will also show points against your license and, in some cases, information on any accidents you have had.
