This page is designed to help you determine the best time/day to visit the County license offices. State Driver's License transactions are currently experiencing EXTREME wait times. The County License staff can do most Drivers License renewals but new issuances, out-of-state transactions or driving tests must be performed by State personnel that do not work for Shelby County. We have a NEW queue system in place that utilizes "take a number" with exterior counters and FM broadcast.

The graph below reflects estimated wait times based on historical records at different business days of the month for County License transactions (not State DL transactions).
Wait time metrics are provided for general information only. Please be advised that wait times can change significantly and immediately, without warning, and are therefore not guaranteed. Due to rapidly changing volumes in each License Office, your own wait time may be more or less than the time displayed on this website.
