    (11)(a) No less than 90 days before the expiration date of the license, the Department of Agriculture andConsumer Services shall mail to each licensee a written notice of the expiration and a renewal form prescribed by the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
    If you received your renewal notification and form within the prescribed time frame, you have only 1 person to be aggravated with. That is yourself, your the one who waited to long start the process.

    Sorry to hear that. All I can say is that you are now a cautionary tale: when you know your license is about to expire, go ahead and start the renewal process early so you don't have a gap between the old and new one. I actually did this with my drivers license and had a similar problem. It was my fault.

    I have to agree with the previous two posters they send it out in plenty of time and if one waits this is what happens

    it was within the 90 day window but due to the increase in applications it will take longer . i called today to find out what the status was on the renewal and this is what i was told was the reason. was told that there are now over 1 million cc permits issued within Florida, something like 1 in 17 people .

    I renewed last year at the branch off of Phillips Highway (in person, not via the mail). It took less than 30 minutes.

    Not 1 in 17. That 1,000,000 figure is for all licenses, for both residents and non-residents alike. Still, that's a lot of paperwork for a state office to process.

    I always go in person to my local sheriffs office at least a month before my renewal date. Usually walk out with my new permit inside of 10 minutes, but I go early just in case. But, it is nice to know that Floridians are making an effort to protect themselves. Of course, one has to wonder how many are doing it just to say they have it and never actually carry anything?

    I know a lady that spent the money to get her ccl. She has never shot more than enough to qualify. Hasn't shot since she qualified and doesn't carry. The ccl was a lark for her. Wish I had that kind of money to spend on a lark lol.
