Why do you think this?
If they run your DL# it will show them immediately that you have your LTC. Or at least that's what I've been told.
This is true, every time a LEO runs your DL your LTC information/ status is also returned.
That may be a good reason to get a license from a reciprocal state if you like your privacy. It doesn't sound like DPS is following the law by notifying Texas LTC to whom they disclosed their license status. It doesn't sound like they're teaching the law regarding 30.06 notice, much less 30.07 notice requirements. How can Texans trust DPS when we know they willfully ignore the law with impunity?
Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
If you're stopped and they're running your DL and you haven't shown them your LTC by now, when they discover it you'll be notified pretty quickly. You won't have to wait for the mail either.
