I just moved from Shelby County, TN to Williamson County. From what I can tell on the county website, it looks like I don't need to update my vehicle registration address until its due in ten months - at which time I register in Williamson. Is that correct? I don't want to incur a fine for not following the rules, but the website says nothing about a time frame so I'm unsure.

Good Question! I have read that you need to notify the state of your move within 10 days. And that your car registration needs to be updated. Not sure about the plates, though. One of the MOST important things would be making sure your car insurance reflects your move.


Here is info on changing your address.

And I'd call the Williamson County Clerk's office to ask about the plates.

Thank you so much! Although I just spent half an hour waiting on the phone for the county clerk, only to be unceremoniously disconnected.

I just sent an email to the clerk. Hopefully someone will respond. Thanks for your help!

UPDATE:

I just received an email from the county clerks's office:

"You do not need an emissions until it is time to renew your tags."

So there we have it. I'll just wait until my tags from Shelby County are about to expire, then I'll just register here in Williamson County with my emissions test. I hope this helps someone else.

Thanks for steering me to the right place, CountryGirl2b!

You're very welcome! The City/County Clerk is the liaison between the people and the government. This office will answer your questions or point you in the right direction. Most good sized cities will have a Clerk's office - so if you move again or have any other questions, hit them up!

I'm on Texas I think our registration is state wide not by county but recall seeing county names on TN plates. Of course Tx registration is under a hundred yearly. But we have registrations offices in most decent sized cities for the county. It's an office combined with property tax. Sounds like TN is similar except for the plates having the county listed on it.
