I'm finally seeing status updates on the texas.gov website, 9 days after starting the process. It shows my background check "under review" with green checks on everything above that. Kind of defeats the point of having a status page if you don't show it until 10 of the 12 checkpoints are cleared. On the upside, I've now memorized my drivers license number.

I just get LICENSE APPLICATION STATUS: If you have a pending License to Carry a Handgun application, please allow sufficient time for processing. If you have not already done so, please submit all of the items listed on the checklist you received. DPS will notify you by mail if further information or additional documents are required. Once the application and documents have been received by Handgun Licensing and processing has begun, a more detailed status will appear on this page.



Today the website shows background check complete print pending!

That's crazy fast! I have been in "Background Check: Under Review" for over a month now... I swear something is lost, but everything is "just processing" according to DPS. I was also told by DPS on the phone, applicants that submit all documentation at the same time will go faster. Would have been nice to know...

Now I wonder how long I will wait for printing and mailing. I'm super surprised the background went so fast.

You need to upload the form they gave you from the class you took.
The form is called the "LTC-100". I scanned mine into a PDF file and attached that.


Finally a couple days ago I got the status green with all checkmatks except the Reviewing Prints and Background Check. I guessing by next week they should wrap it up.

Heads up for “born abroad to American citizens” to upload all birth records when you first apply. Got notified to submit those after a very long wait, then took another three weeks after I submitted them to even clear that. They won’t do background checks until all that is clear. Been in Texas since age 9 with squeaky clean record but because my USN dad was stationed out of the country when I was born, the process is difficult. When I called I was told I went to bottom of the pile after submitting (and the three weeks it took to accept the birth records) and the wait time starts over, and if I had submitted the birth records upfront, would not have had to go through this.

Even though it's a moot point now because of today's Senate vote, I'm wondering if a federal gov't shutdown would have delayed my LTC, specifically the background check portion?

Awesome! :thumbs2:
I have no idea why yours took so long. But, I'm glad to hear you're finally seeing progress!

Good luck, my background check has been "under review" for 6 weeks now. Clean record; I have only had a speeding ticket at this point in my life. I have moved a few times in the past 10 years being in the military, but I can't see any of that making it take so long. Calling DPS is about as useful as an automated message too.

Looks like we are on about the same timeline. Hopefully that means I go "print pending" or mailed soon any day now!

All of my required stuff was submitted on January 18, 2018. The application sat without obvious activity until today, January 26, when it began showing green checks on the first ten listed items, and background check in progress.
