Military renewal question

Postby FireForEffectK » Thu Jan 10, 2013 1:49 am

I am currently stationed overseas and won't make it home in time enough to renew my Texas CHL. I haven't received the renewal notification/package as of yet, but it should be on its way. I will only have 2 months before my Tx CHL expires by the time I get home. I understand submitting the renewal within 45 days of receipt of the renewal package. Won't happen. I haven't seen any exceptions for Soldiers. I did request info from the Tx Gov CHL site concerning my predicament but haven't received an answer yet.

Question:
I WILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE ENTIRE PROCESS AGAIN FROM SCRATCH WON'T I?

Thank God for Nonresident Virginia CHL! That is my plan in progress just in case. Don't want to leave myself and family unprotected during the process time, if it comes to it.

Renewal Package? What's that?
They just send you a letter now telling you to do everything online.

Two months is plenty of time for you to renew online once you are back home.

You submit the application, pay your money and upload the CHL-100 and that's it. All online once you have your new CHL-100.

Renewals take you about one day to do your part and it takes them about 3 weeks to do their part. As long as you get started before yours expires you will have no problems other than to be without a Valid CHL if you waited till say 3 weeks before it expired. But even then I believe you have 6 months grace to renew....but I am not sure on that.

I did my second renewal 6 months BEFORE expire!

Thanks for your service! :thumbs2:

Even if you aren't able to get renewed before your expiration date, you won't have to go through the entire process again.

You have 1 year after the expiration date to renew your CHL. After 1 year, you have to start over again as a newbie.

I can't believe somebody who gets a FREE license is whining about the class. :roll:

Whining? I didn't read a "whine". A request for clarification is all that was there.

Free? Just tell the good service member "Thank You!"

He was rightfully worried about being able to complete the necessary legal requirements to renew. He wants to comply with the law.

One note; once your license expires you cannot carry a concealed handgun until you take your renewal and get your new license. The grace period only gives you the ability to take the renewal class and not have to go through the initial class again.
