Davidson County Clerk offers tips on avoiding long lines

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Davidson County Clerk’s Office is trying to help more people learn ways to avoid long lines at his office.

According to Davidson County Clerk Brenda Wynn, people line up before the gates open. Her main office recently closed when 19 staff members tested positive for COVID-19.

“Every day before 8 o’clock, people are here waiting to access our services and we are here to serve the public,” said Wynn. “That’s what we want to do, but we want to do it as efficiently as possible.”

The first people coming in for services Thursday were in and out of the clerk’s office within a couple of minutes, so Wynn said she feels her biggest challenge is the sheer volume of people coming in for services. He explained that the average wait time can be 15 minutes or more right now, and the recent removal of the emissions test means more people can get tags.

“Our numbers have gone up since the removal of the emissions test and what that means is there are more cars that probably wouldn’t have passed the emissions test in the past that are now on the road and we understand that,” Wynn said.

In 2020, during the same period of 6 months, 197,650 motor vehicles were registered and this year there have been 230,800. Its main office recently closed when 19 staff members tested positive for COVID-19.

The clerk tells us that most people can do business in his office online or by mail for a minimal fee. She reminds the community that they saved $9 when the emissions test was eliminated.

“If you’re renewing by mail or online, it’s going to cost you $2 if you need a sticker or $5 if you need a plate,” he explained. “So, take some of that $9 you saved earlier in the year and spend it to renew by mail. We will send you your plate by mail. Last week we noticed that someone received a dish within the week.
