Re: Replacing Lost Certificates

I understand your frustration, but in the aspect of 'customer service' I'd kindly suggest replying to their email with a PDF copy of their certificate (with a reminder for them to sign the bottom before uploading to DPS' portal, if your copy doesn't have their signature). Other than time, this optio...

Re: Man who died from knee to neck was from Texas

To be clear, I'm not saying the officer didn't contribute to his cardiac arrest. What I am saying is there's a lot more contributing factors than just the officer holding him down, & that to me I don't see a strangulation/pressure on his neck that would cause asphyxiation. Yes, I've watched a couple...

Re: Man who died from knee to neck was from Texas

Independent/Private autopsy report says George Floyd died from asphyxiation..... interesting (even though we figured that all along). Was somebody trying to cover for the cops during that first autopsy CNN posted? Independent autopsy also says there is no evidence in the body of the neck compressio...

Re: Man who died from knee to neck was from Texas

Foxnews reports says cop and deceased worked together at same nightclub..... https://www.foxnews.com/us/results-of-george-floyd-independent-autopsy-expected-today Interesting. Coincidence? Shallow depth of their reporting. Other article I read quoted owner of that same nightclub as saying they doub...

Re: Instructor submitting 101's and 100's

Here's my take: If the instructor submits the LTC-100/101, it's likely going to sit in limbo. All the RSD needs from the Instructor is the LTC-8/9 certifying that the class occurred, & pass/fail status of each student. The LTC-8/9 is then associated with the INSTRUCTOR's file. The applicant (is, Stu...

Re: Anti gun coalition targeting Texas to try and flip us

It's time to conduct membership drives for the NRA & TSRA, and invite friends/family/co-workers to the range to expose them to the realities of firearm ownership, safety, and the responsibilities of maintaining our freedoms / advocating for the safety of ourselves and our families. I welcome Bloombe...

I have tried to find this info on the DPS website. Can someone direct me to where I can find this info. Thank you. Y...
