How long is the wait for renewed licenses?

Postby UrbanTiger74 » Wed Oct 16, 2013 12:17 pm

Hey guys, new to the forum. Thanks for having me. Here's my situation. DPS got all my 1st time renewal papers first week of September, online status says background, fingerprints still in review and application received. Everything else is green. :grumble What are the wait times now? Anyone else experience this long of a wait for a first time renewal? :waiting: Thanks for the input!!!!

Do they still have 45 days for renewals by law? I know they sometimes make up their own rules instead of following the law, but there are enough threads on that.

We got ours before the old ones expired. Why wait 'til the last minute to renew?

This what we did, too. We received our new ones with over a month to spare. Took about 4 weeks from online renewal to mail in hand.

My renewal was the pre-Sep 1st classroom type. paperwork was mailed 7 days prior to Sept 1.
It sat in same stage pending fingerprint and background until I finally called them asking what's up. I was told everything we fine and a message was being sent to some area within the department. I checked two days later and it had changed to pending manufacture. Last night mailed. I think it has been 54 days since I mailed everything.
