    Just got off the phone again... still processing.

    Figured I'd inquire as to 'why'. Seems that my actual application hasn't been entered into the computer yet.

    "Yeah, we have a rather large stack of applications here... yours may be in it... But you know with holidays and all we're kinda behind.... You did send off your applications with proof of class certificate?"

    Yes mam, I couldn't get fingeprinted before that.

    Ah yes, when did you apply?

    Oct 16, fingerprinted the next weekend.

    "Well I'm sure we'll get to it, it's just us three women here.... Sometimes it can take up to 90 days....."

    :eek4:

    ARRRUUUGHGHGHG!

    Only in Tenne-fuckin'-ssee.

    Called the TDOT center I had to originally apply at... Just to make sure you know that I hadn't screwed anything up or screwed up a form....

    It turned out that my application was constantly being recycled in the 'holding' bin because the original lady that processed the application HADN'T FUCKING SIGNED IT.

    After several appologizes, they are faxing paperwork now to expedite the process.

    Good thing I decided to look this up, if not I would be waiting forever.

    Yeah, if not I'd still be waiting next year scratching my head.

    It's more a matter of $115 app fee and $50 class fee that's tied up in it.

    .... an a $75 CTAC holster :cool:

    Damn, that's shitty. I'm glad mine went VERY quickly. I was actually on vacation for half of the wait :cool:

    How long is yours up to now?

    Glad in MN the law is 30-days from turn in until approve/deny. They seem to mail the permit ON the 30th day though (getting 31st or 32nd)

    I had my mom send in my papers for my Texas CHL because I was in Germany for the whole time. Essentially, I didn't have to wait at all for it because I wasn't even thinking of it doing all my traveling and sight-seeing. :big grin:

    Ugh makes me dread the day when I go to do this. I was hoping TN would be pretty quick, but apparently not.

    It wasn't the state that took that long, it was his DMV's fault.

    Like I said I got mine in 23 days from the date of application. They move pretty quickly.
