If the discount would be available on the date your CHL would have expired (your birthday) it is calculated properly when you apply online prior to expiration.
How's that for a fast response time?

Besides, it might apply to someone sooner.

Subject: Question about senior citizen rate
This actually won't apply until 2011, but wanted to clarify.
My license expires on my 60th birthday. If I renew in the prior six months, I will still be 59 and would not qualify for the reduced rate.
Yet, the new license would take effect the day after my 60th birthday.
Also, this will be my fifth class, so I will qualify for a pass on taking the course.
Once my 6 month window arrives next year, what may I expect?
Mike xxxxxIf you apply online prior to your 60th birthday you will pay standard amount. If you mail in your application process you can submit the discounted rate for senior citizens.

So, we are all supposed to apply online, but if I apply online I don’t get the discounted fee.
But if I mail the application, I can get the discounted fee.
But this being my fifth renewal, I don’t have to take the class so I won’t be getting an application.
What am I overlooking? Or is it Catch-22?

So am I correct in that all I will need according to my reciept is the checklist and the CHL-100 training form? The page that printed out has a large barcode and statement saying required forms, Checklist (this page) and CHL-100 training form.

DPS does not collect a fee for the digital fingerprints. I don't know if the fees vary by the different franchises, and the only fee I've heard is $9.95.
