Anybody had your fingerprint cards come back?

And how long did your license take afterward? After they sat on my application for a couple months they finally decided they didn't like my fingerprints for whatever reason, so they sent me a letter and a couple new cards to get them redone. As luck would have it I cut the shit out of my finger the next day, so it took me about a month to get the new cards done. Today makes 2 weeks since they received them back and still nothing.

I know people on here have said that once they send you something back like that it usually means they have your license done, so I was expecting it kind of quickly. Or maybe it will be like the first time I sent it in and it takes them a month just to take it out of the mailbox? AAARRRGGGHHHH!!!

Bottom line they first received my packet on march 3rd and I'm still "processing."

my dad had his pics sent back because they were "too blurry" which i thought was crap and he sent the new ones in within about 2 weeks and still has waited another 3 months putting him at about 6 1/2 moths already. if that gives you any kind of idea on the delay you will expect from it

Two weeks is not really enough time to be worried. If I remember correctly they send one of those fingerprint cards to the FBI, and possibly run a background check with the other. This is probably what takes up the most time, meaning you may still have a while to wait. Had you just flubbed a number or missed a question on your application you may have it by now. I'm sure you have also heard that they are swamped right now.

Be patient and good luck.

I had one of my photos sent back because the guy that took them didn't sign the back of it. I got it signed, and sent it back about 4 weeks ago. Website still shows processing application.

The person I talked to on the phone said everything else was good, and that is all they needed so I expected it wouldn't take too long, but wtf do I know?

When did you send your packet in? Mine was sent 3/23 if that helps to give you an idea.

Man, this is some bullshit.

Got my PIN on March 2 and STILL Processing Application.


I emailed them a couple weeks ago and I got a reply saying that all was well...they were just waiting on my background checks to get back to them. Evidently, my local background check is sitting on somebody's desk, buried underneath a ton of other paperwork.

Anything in the background holding it up? Sounds like somebody dropped the ball on yours. I didn't get my pin until the first or second week in April.

For some reason, it's been taking anybody up here in this area to get their paperwork to go through. I dunno wtf. A friend of mine sent her paperwork off just before New Year's and she got hers at the first of June. I sent mine off approx. one month after she sent hers, so I'm expecting this super-slo-mo process to complete at the end of this month.

Well I did mine online so the timeline is a little different, applied about 2/9 online, received PIN about a week later, took the class 2/22 and they physically received my packet on 3/3. Finally took it out of the mailbox and started processing it on 4/2 I believe. Then like I said they sent it back 2 months later and I had it for about a month to get the prints redone. Hopefully it won't take them too much longer, I've been antsy for a long time now!

Why would anyone get regular fingerprints done? Electronic printing, FTW.
