After a couple of calls from my state reps office things are finally getting done. The print of my LTC is pending, and I should have it in hand in the very near future.

What has me curious is no new info was needed, or requested, and nothing has changed for me at all. I would love to know what caused the delay. Doubt it was distance as I am in San Antonio.

I am still submitting for the AZ permit as well as a back up.
I'm curios too... Please let us know if you ever figure out the reason for the delay.

Also.... FYI... AZ licenses expire 5 years from issue date, regardless of your birthday (unless something changed since I got mine in 2016). If you apply for an AZ license a half-year from your birthday, you should never have less than about 1 year to work through any renewal issues. (6 months for TX renewal plus 6 more months (at least) of validity on the AZ license).

Well, talked to DPS again yesterday and the lady stated the license was good to go. That my asking for a supervisor pushed things along. Hmm, why do we have to call to speed things along and others get their renewals so quickly? Today my status shows Print pending , background complete. :tiphat:

Any reason given for the delay?

Glad you got it sorted. Sure would be interesting to know why.

She kind of gave me the reason it got moving (took me calling and asking for supervisor) but not why it was stalled. I know that at the very beginning my status had actually stated all green but the background check and print pending after application review, then later it showed fingerprints under review. Seems like the fingerprints under review is what put a halt to the quick process. But then I called and they stated the fingerprints were good , but then why was I showing them under review? Don't really know honestly . Still have my AZ packet on the way.

It appears to me your application was lost in the proverbial crack until someone shined a flashlight on it.

Quite possibly. Thanks big454 for the update.
I still think that DPS does a top-notch job overall, but, like any service organization, isn't always perfect.

Just wanted to give DPS props. I had a positive experience on my renewal just as some above have mentioned. Applied April 26. Card in hand May 13. Web site worked great and everything was easy and painless. If only I could say the same for all govt. experiences.

Just wanted to give DPS kudos. I had a positive experience on my renewal. Used the on-line method to apply for renewal on July 3, 2019 and found the new license in my mailbox July 16. That was fast!!! They even used the new photo from my drivers lic. renewal. Nice to have the new card in my wallet.
