Granted there are a few that take longer, but even those are coming quicker than years past. It wasn't that long ago that the wait time was 90+ days. So be happy folks. Forget about it for a minimum of 60 days and you might find a surprize in the mail in 45 days or so.
This Thursday will be 1 month since my app and all other docs were delivered to Austin, and Im still not in the system, shows up as ERROR. Funny though the $140 check I mailed cleared my bank on 3/19 so they have atleast opened my packet and got their money. Still waiting for DPS to send me my letter to go have my finger prints done.
The only time I got an "error" trying to log in was when I typed in my Social wrong on the log in screen. I also got an error one time when I entered my birthdate with the wrong year (entered 2013), but it just told me I was too young to apply. I hope the issue isn't that you entered one of these incorrectly on your app. Sorry to point out new things to worry over. :confused5
2/8 Online Apply--2/12 Packet Mailed
3/14 Packet Received--Background Check Start
4/6 Background Check Complete--4/18 CHL Received!

Did I miss the memo that said new applicants could submit scans instead of original documents? I know some people do it, but didn't know it was officially supported.
This message was misspelled by my Apple mobile device.

I must need new glasses.

I swear I read the title of this thread as "DPS Losing DEMOCRATS". And I had to find out where they were stashing them...
