Tennessee requires "Proof of Financial Responsibility" which can be satisfied by liability insurance with minimums of 25/50/10. Otherwise, a bond or other assurance of ability to pay damages is required. Proof is not required at the time of vehicle registration, but penalties are incurred if proof is not provided at the time of an accident. Proof is required regardless of fault, so all parties must provide it. Most drivers opt for insurance.
