Different Expiration Dates??

Postby BSL-4 » Fri Dec 22, 2017 10:11 am

So it's been a while since I stopped in here. Hi! The DH & I got our CHLs in 2014. We started the process December 2013 and sent off paperwork in January 2014 (that wait time sucked!) Anyway, the DH asked me last night how we're renewing our CHLs next year. And I'm like what?? Mine expires in 2019. But low & behold, his has an October 2018 expiration, while mine is February 2019, even though we took the classes together and mailed out our paper work at once (I did get my CHL sooner because I did mine online and he didn't). Only thing interesting is our CHL expiration day is on our birthdays. Anyone run into this problem? Who do you suggest the DH contact to get his expiration date corrected? Thanks!

IIRC they always expire on your Bday... when you are originally issued, you usually get some extra time, until the following Bday. I don't think you can "correct" the dates so you two match. My wife and I are 6 mos apart for the same reason.

October 2019 would be >5 years?

That's just the way they do it. It's the same with your driver's license.

Wife & I have the same thing. There was a window of time when we could attend the renewal together, and that is what we did.

Yes, which would make no sense because it should be four years for our initial CHL. But my renewal date in Feb 2019 does make mine five years, which is why I thought it was odd.

Great. I'm already annoyed about renewing my DL before my birthday. Like I need another reminder! :lol:

That's what we had planned to do. But I'm reading that range & classroom time is no longer required for CHL renewal??

Correct. The last time we renewed we each did it online.

Excellent, thanks! I told the DH I'd find the right answers here instead of trying to weed through internet searches!

You each will receive a reminder letter from DPS about 6 months before expiration. Once you receive that letter, your online account will be active for renewal. It's easy (and now cheaper!).

Merry Christmas.

Thank you for the information! I'll tell the DH to watch for the letter in March!

Or you're like me and never receive the letter because you've moved out of state and back and then remember you need to renew when buying a new gun at Academy because the clerk helpfully reminds you "Hey your LTC is going to expire soon." :lol:
