Re: Drunk License Holder in Friendswood Arrested

When people ask me if they should get a CHL and I know they have alcohol consumption outside the residence as an important part of their lifestyle, I tell them they will be under increased scrutiny by law enforcement if stopped by police.

Re: Am I going to have trouble getting my CHL?

It will probably still say "background search pending" when your license arrives in the mail

The first revolver woud function perfectly in dry firing but it wo...

Re: Instructor's Cert Renewal

I have heard from several DPS individuals and they are consisent that we do nothave to send in the form 90. It seems odd that they wanted me to send in a check list with a check on it and nothing else but it seems most likely that they are really Not demanding the chl-90. Proof of citizenship seems ...

Re: Instructor's Cert Renewal

It will probably say that even after you receive your certification. That's the way it was with my chl renewal. It said, "Issue pending background check " right up until the thing actually arrived. Probably still says that though I haven't looked. In ref: the instructor renewal, I made the mistake o...

Re: Instructor's Cert Renewal

Truly amazing. I wonder if they ever got L1 straightened out to the point that it's usable.

Re: Instructor's Cert Renewal

They sent the password and it WORKED. The receipt said I got all the test questions right and that it had been transmitted. Now, to see what other requirements might crop up.

Re: Instructor's Cert Renewal

Very likely, the confusion associated with these reapplication notices is related to The Hollidays though it does seem like after a month, things should return to normal. From November 1 through the new year, an amazing number of people in both the private and public sector just do not come to work ...

Re: Instructor's Cert Renewal

The password I used to order certificates (when they send out physical certificates) ,according to the man who answered the phone at CHL) is not the right one. Consistent with contacts other posters here have received, he said that no chl-90 is necessary but completion of a test IS. I have followed ...

Re: Instructor's Cert Renewal

no were in the material they sent me-the renewal notice or on the online application /payment page did they even mention the existence of a test. Twice, I have requested the courtesy of an e-mail clarification of just what they might want but this has not been answered. I reached the agency by telep...

Re: Instructor's Cert Renewal

Ok. I just got the notification. I went online, signed in, filled out the preliminary stuff including checking off on affidavits and paying the money. I was prompted to download my 'checklist'. Up until this point, the process was exactly like the online application for CHL renewal. The checklist an...
