NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The use of iPads to improve wait times at Tennessee driver service centers has brought the state a technology award.

The Center for Digital Government cited the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security's use of iPads at several centers and gave the state an award in the government-to-citizen state government category.

Safety Commissioner Bill Gibbons said customers have reacted positively to the installation of the digital tablets at 26 centers. Customers normally receive the new driver license within minutes of the transaction.

The department also encourages citizens to renew driver licenses online at http://www.tn.gov .
