(CBS/AP) Some Tennessee drivers will get a break when applying for license renewals, thanks to Apple iPad kiosks that have been installed throughout the state.

The Department of Safety and Homeland Security has installed 72 iPad automatic self-service electronic terminals (ASSETS) kiosks inside 26 driver service centers to speed renewals and replacements. Most of the terminals are in urban areas of the state.

"Reducing the wait time at driver service centers is one of our top priorities. These self-service iPad stations will cut down on the number of customers waiting for service from a driver license examiner and will help reduce the overall wait time for all customers," Bill Gibbons, security commissioner, said in a press release.

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.
