I have a misdemeanor DWI conviction also on my record. The above doesn't reflect the "real waiting time" with a record. I got a certified disposition from the court and submitted it with my supporting documents from the very beginning. I think that this key preparation was responsible for my fast turnaround time, which I was very impressed with. I thought at minimum I would have to wait the whole 60 days and from what I've been reading, 90 or 120 days. Luckily, the time from submitting my application and submitting supporting documents to background check completed and print pending was only 34 days! I consider myself very lucky that my application was completed in such a short period of time, and I am grateful to DPS working in a timely manner to get applications completed! I had called them a few times during the wait, and they told me I did an excellent job of getting everything together and sending it all at once in the first place. You don't have to be waiting over 60 or 90 days just because you have something on your record that could hold things up. Correct preparation is the key and with that, DPS will get your applications done in a quick timely manner with the fastest possible time so you don't have to wait all the way until 60 days, 90, 120, or even 180 days. Good preparation from the beginning is the key guys. I think they did a great job over there, considering my circumstances like many others who might have something on their record. 34 days from submission to print pending!

GOD BLESS THE STATE OF TEXAS :txflag:
