    Rene,
    I am writing to inquire about my CHL application. I am curious as to when
    I might receive a notification of license issued. According to my records,
    the DPS received my packet and payment on 3/9/09. My status changed
    to “Processing Application” on 4/14/09. Please know that I understand that
    your agency in inundated with applicants and delays are to be expected.
    Does the 60 days start when the DPS receives the packet or when the
    Pin # is issued? Any information that you can provide will be greatly
    appreciated.



    Respectfully,
    ErnieNWillis

    I hope this email was polite enough and might possibly get my license to my mailbox sooner, but I doubt it. Anyone else get a faster response by emailing the DPS?

    Sounds polite enough, not sure if it will speed anything up, but polite yes.

    Edit: I emailed earlier today trying to get a PIN and this is the reply from them

    "Your application has not been entered into the system. It is likely going though the processes required before entry. When a completed application is entered you will be sent a confirmation letter with your PIN number."

    Was a quick reply so hopefully I will be in the system soon ....

    DPS has 90 days, not 60, from the date the receive a completed application to either issue, deny or tell you they need more time.

    That said, your letter was very respectful, hope you get issued soon.

    Ah, Rene huh?

    Hopefully your email correspondence with him is better than mine:

    My email to DPS



    Reply from Rene:

    Anyhow, no thanks to Rene, I got the matter resolved a week later by calling and speaking to Felicia.
