iPad technology speeding license renewals

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Many Tennessee driver's license examining stations now use Apple iPad technology for license renewals.

The Department of Safety and Homeland Security has installed kiosks inside 26 driver service centers to speed renewals and replacements. Most of the terminals are in urban areas of the state.

Drivers can fill out the form electronically and pay using a debit or credit card. They should receive the new license within minutes.

The kiosks can also be used to change drivers' addresses or pay reinstatement fees.

Department Commissioner Bill Gibbons said reducing wait times is a priority.
