    I just checked the DPS website and they have FINALLY approved my CHL application! So now I just wait for the ID! Wow! And to think, they've only had my application since April 10!

    I'm only about 3 hours from Austin. I hope it doesn't take too long to get here. I'm leaving tomorrow afternoon to spend a week in South Carolina. Sure hope I get it in time!

    Thanks!

    I appreciate it. Now if I can just get the ID in the mail...... LittleGun and Cyfer, I know exactly what you are going through. mac79912, I can't imagine having to wait another 2 months! I don't blame the staff working on it. But someone should have seen this coming or at least they could throw more money at it! Right now though, I'm just elated and relieved.

    Congrats on joining the "revocable privilege" club........mine didn't take very long at all to approve - but took FOREVER to get the address changed when I moved (one town over) a few months ago. From what I understand, the office that processes CHL's is totally swamped right now - and they are even being "forced" to break their own laws regarding turnaround time on applications......

    Update?

    I'm curious - my wife and I intend to take the class as soon as we can get the time. It's now early October. Anyone know how long the processing is running lately?

    I mailed my application on July 14. I got an acknowledgment letter on Aug. 8. I got my Hurricane Ike letter on Sept. 26. I'm still waiting. I try not to think about it.
