After trolling the waiting room everyday after my daily status check I figured I might as well join.
Snail mailed mine as well as my wife's packet on March 10th. And finally I hit pay dirt on Friday April 25th with the background check in progress for both my wife and I.
Then I was fortunate to check this morning and find everything was complete and manufacturing pending. (My wife's still stuck on background check). So hopefully plastic in hand next week! :clapping:

My CHL instructor informed us that we did not have to mail the FAST (fingerprint) paper application since our fingerprints were sent electronically. Is that true?

Yes this is true. You do not need to send it.

Nice. My snailmail got to DPS on the 27th so it looks like I could be looking at another ~10 days

I completed my class and had all docs uploaded by 3/8 with confirmation on 3/10 and still have no update. It's good to see that people close to my time are seeing their apps being processed. I wonder when a good time would be to call DPS. It seems a lot of people on here were able to call DPS and get an update the next day.

I would imagine it would be pointless to call until day 60.

Been lurking for a minute, bout time I jump on this waiting bandwagon. CHL class Feb 20
Fingerprints 3/17
Mailed CHL packet 3/18
Received 3/20 USPS certified

No update online, still waiting on CHL Package. Called on 4/23 and was told allow 6-8 weeks. Emailed and got a response CHL was mailed out on 4/15. 5 minutes later got another email apologizing and this was info for another person with my same name. Talk about a buzzkill! Thought I was special there for 5 minutes. Lol!

You're probably right. I'll give it another week or so before I call. I'm on day 52 right now.

Yeah, what a buzzkill! I was about to be both happy for you and jealous as all-get-out for having your stuff mailed in under a month after document receipt.
