Re: 2019 New LTC Processing Timeline...

I went and checked online and it says my license has been mailed. Unfortunately there aren't any dates on any of the items, so I don't know if this for my recent renewal, or if they're referring to my original application back in 2010. :confused5

Re: 2019 New LTC Processing Timeline...

I've been a member of this website since Feb 2009, and I've had my CHL since Feb 22, 2010. I renewed my CHL once, back in 2014, and it took 16 days. I know this because I found my post from back then, when I was delighted at how quick and efficient the process had become: https://texaschlforum.com/viewtopic.php ... 56#p903956

My CHL license was set to expire again on my recent birthday, Sep 2nd, 2019, so on August 6th I finally remembered to sit down and do the online renewal, thinking it would be another routine two-to-three-week process. However, on Sep 1, the before my birthday, there was still no new license, so I sent an email inquiry to the Texas DPS. Roughly two weeks later, on Sep 13, I received this response:
Our records indicate your renewal application is processing. We appreciate your understanding and patience. This can take up to six (6) business weeks to complete once your application is submitted and all documents are received. In the event additional review or more information or documents are required to complete an application, DPS has an additional 180 days to complete the review process. No additional documentation is needed at this time.
So what has changed to make a process that used to be quick and easy become a slow bureaucratic nightmare again? I've had my license for ten years with absolutely no problems, so I have no idea why it's taking so long.

So now what? I'm not very comfortable carrying with an expired license, although I think the risk is minimal.

Sigh.
