All docs submitted on 1.5.14. This morning it says the only thing left is the printing.

It was in the pile of mail that arrived while I was visiting my parents in Kansas. The wife said it hadn't arrived, but when I double checked it was in there. So, it arrived sometime before the 25th when I returned. That means it was here within 20 days of submission. That's pretty good!

Meh, a few of us turned in back in November. You should calm down and feel lucky if you're already print pending.

Application: 12.31.16
Fingerprint Appt: 1.6.17
Class: 1.14.17
Submitted Supporting Docs (Received): 1.17.17
Background Check Complete: 2.1.17
Mailed: 2.7.17
Plastic In Hand: 2.9.17

I went ahead and got my application and fingerprints done ahead of time because first availability for a class was two weeks out. Fun note this is the second time I've done this now--from what I remember this is more running around and more money, but way less headache. Last time I did this it was right when Obama was making his way into office and wait time on licenses was about 4 months. I remember showing up for class around 8AM and not getting out until 7PM--ink fingerprints and passport photos were done in class and they got everyone ready to send in their manila envelope.

Of course I had to move out of state for a few years before coming back and my out of state license was only valid so long as I held a DL from the same state so here I am again. Been so long I forgot my login name and e-mail.

Wow that is awful--don't regulations say even after a letter they only have 180 days to finish? 11 months is ridiculous.

Technically they didn't START till 12-5-16 once they finally confirmed all the paperwork. The background check and fingerprints were pending for 2 weeks alone.
