    Hope it goes quick...but my expectations are for slowness...anyone have a recent timeline of how the process went for them? Sorry if this thread has been beat to death.

    Congrats, now for the hard part.....the wait. Sorry can't give you a recent time as I've had mine for a while. You should be doing the Wally-Walk soon enough. :texas:

    Starting the process on -line and prepaying does help speed things along I believe, but the clock doesn't start until you take your class and mail in the packet, so the sooner you can do that the better.

    Brazoria County
    Girlfriend is sitting at 139 days as of today and she paid online.
    Excuses range from swamped to not enough officers to do the BG check to waiting on {insert county here}.

    Also you may want to check out the waiting room...

    3/9/09 DPS received packet
    3/13/09 DPS cashed Check
    4/14/09 Status changed to "Processing Application"
    6/29/09 Status still "Processing Application"

    113 days and counting! Latest excuse is that they are waiting on my BC from Harris County. Get ready for 4-6 months of frustration.

    I'm at just over a month from when my check was cashed and just got my PIN in the mail, do you have a class date yet?

    No class scheduled yet...I was going to wait for the pre-paid packet to arrive, then get to a class.
