Can someone verify that even if someone has a license from another state that they move from:..they still need to take thee Texas class to get a Texas license.

For example...someone moves here from Tennessee and has a Tennessee license...they have to take the class and go thru the whole Texas process right?


Do they have to wait 6 months?

Yes, they have to apply and take the class.
No, they do not have to wait six months.
I am not sure what you mean about the three classes.
As far as I know I only had to take one. :tiphat:

Correct I know of no more 6 month waiting period, I think they can get a Texas Driver License without retesting, if you have a valid license in another state. (I may be wrong :confused5 .
They do have to take Tx LTC course to get an LTC license. The other state resident license is not valid, since they are no longer a resident in that state.
I have not researched this, because it has not come up in my classes. This is only what I recall. They could pick an instructor and he would probably take the time to research or maybe someone will come along with a definite answer due to their research.

Here is the legal basis for the lack of a six month wait.
GC §411.172. ELIGIBILITY.
(a) A person is eligible for a license to carry a handgun if the person:
(1) is a legal resident of this state for the six-month period preceding the date of application under this subchapter or is otherwise eligible for a license under Section 411.173(a);

<snip>

GC §411.173. NON-RESIDENT LICENSE.
(a) The department by rule shall establish a procedure for a person who meets the eligibility requirements of this subchapter other than the residency requirement established by Section 411.172(a)(1) to obtain a license under this subchapter if the person is a legal resident of another state or if the person relocates to this state with the intent to establish residency in this state. The procedure must include payment of a fee in an amount sufficient to recover the average cost to the department of obtaining a criminal history record check and investigation on a nonresident applicant. A license issued in accordance with the procedure established under this subsection:
IANAL, but it wouldn't be the first time it''s been done.
