Hey guys my wife and I are contemplating a move to tennessee around the Knoxville area. I've searched the Internet and got conflicting answers so I figured I'd just ask someone from tennessee.

Am I required to purchase car insurance in tenn? The DMV website has conflicting information and I read a news article about a bill that had passed the senate requiring insurance last year. Anyways, do you need insurance or not?

Thanks
