checking the status of my CHL application

i sent in my app a few weeks ago and have yet to recieve a letter from the state about how to check the status of it.

i do have a trace number, is this what i am supposed to use? if so how do look it up with this. i have looked at their page to log in and check it but i have no pin number to log in?

I received my chl in mail, when my status on the website was " in processing". So I don't believe the website is accurate. But it gives you some sense of relief that they received the packet and the money order.

x2 same here. The website is just like a bread and circus. Ask a CHL instructor and they will give you a good frame of time on when you will receive the actual license

As soon as I got my PIN in the mail I checked it, it said processing, and it said that every day for almost a month...
I think it took about 7-8 weeks total from when I mailed it off...

Call them first before you assume it is lost. The wife's still says Packet Mailed to Applicant (mailed Feb 5), but when I called them they said that it was processing.

They dont do a day by day update on this shit.

It's like machine gun stuff. You see when your check was cashed, and then everything is listed as pending for 2 months. Then all the sudden it's at your door.

Id just be patient.

I just wanna make sure its been received. I could care less if it takes awhile to process. I just wanted to check that so I don't have to go through it all over if it was lost in the mail

Did you send it certified with delivery confirmation?

I mailed mine and got my return reciept dated 4/7/08. It's been almost 2 months and not a word.

I was told by a CHL instructor at work that they are currently expecting 90-120 days due to the backlog.

Nice. I got mine exactly 1 month after I mailed it in (standard first class, not certified) last year.

It will be a while. I sent mine in the 2nd week of February, and it was approved Monday.

Now I just need the freaking card to get here!!
