CHL Question

Finally got our CHL stuff done and mailed in. I know it takes a while for them to get your license back to you but does anyone know how long it takes to show up on the TX DPS info?

Our instructor told us if I get pulled over and they run my license it will come up if I have one, and that even if I'm not carrying it would be smart to tell them just so theres no questions when he sees it on the screen. My question is at what point will it start showing up on the DPS screen? anyone know or checked this out before?

You dont have a CHL until it gets to you in the mail. You can only carry and have to tell the police about your CHL until then. Dont worry about it until you get plastic in the mail.

FYI it shows up in the system as a TCIC hit, just like a warrant would kinda.

thanks,

I knew I couldn't carry until I get it, but wasn't sure when it would start coming up in the system. I was just curious more than anything!

thanks for the info

When they receive the paperwork it will show processing application. It will stay at that untill it says licensed issued/mailed to recipient or something like that.
Look at about 3-6 months if no issues with paperwork.

Not a problem. Dont worry about it till you get plastic, nothing is valid until then.

Not true. It will show processing application when they start working on it, not when they get it. Then it changes to license active or some shit, at that point expect to see it in your mail box in 2-4 days. I only saw license active for all of 20 minutes and then UPS delivered it with a letter from someone at DPS.
