How to Get a Tennessee F Endorsement


Under Tennessee law, persons who wish to drive a vehicle to transport persons or property for employment purposes, such as taxi drivers, couriers, ambulance drivers and delivery drivers, must obtain a Class F endorsement from Tennessee Driver Services. In order to obtain a Class F endorsement, a driver must demonstrate Tennessee residency and pass the Class F endorsement test.

  • Meet the requirements for obtaining a Class F endorsement. In order to receive a Class F endorsement you must be at least 18 years old, or 16 years old if you are applying for a Class F endorsement for the sole purpose of working for a family business. You also must have at least two years of unrestricted driving experience, demonstrate fitness of character and be driving a Class D automobile, as opposed to a commercial truck.

  • Obtain proof of citizenship, identity and residency in Tennessee. Tennessee Driver Services requires applicants for Class F endorsement to provide proof of citizenship or lawful resident status, by providing either a birth certificate issued by a U.S. state, a valid passport, permanent alien resident card or a stamped Form I-94. You also must provide a photo ID and a Social Security card. You must provide two examples of documents proving Tennessee residency, such as a utility bill, bank statement or voter registration with a Tennessee address.

  • Visit a full-service Tennessee Driver Services office during working hours. Tennessee Driver Services publishes an online listing of all service center locations.

  • Pass the Class F endorsement test. To assist individuals in obtaining a Class F endorsement, Tennessee Driver Services publishes a handbook and study guide for test takers. If you already have a valid Tennessee driver's license, you are only required to pass a knowledge and vision test. If you do not have a valid Tennessee driver's license, you must pass a knowledge, vision and driving test. The knowledge test is a 25-question multiple choice test, for which a passing score is at least 20 questions answered correctly.

  • Pay the for-hire endorsement fee. As of 2011, the fee for obtaining a Class F endorsement is $4.50.
