    Tennessee permit waiting time

    I went to DMV the day after Christmas and submitted my application. I went the next day and had my fingerprints taken. I called last week and all they tell me is that it is processing.

    My question is: Are there another TN applicants that have been waiting that long? Also, if you have gotten a TN permit recently, how long did yours take?

    The DMV???

    I remember when I applied for my permit, that written test was a joke and the eye test too. It just really sucked not being able to drive alone!

    I did my class and got my fingerprints mid November 2012 and got my permit the first week of December.

    Permit wait times are up everywhere. I live i indianapolis and have been waiting for my renewed permit for over a month. It used to take 5 days for a renewed permit and two weeks for a new issue. The permit office told me thay have seen an increas eof over 30% in permit applications since december. It sucks but it is how it is right now.

    MJB_17. Tn took the Handgun Carry Permit process out of the hands of local sheriffs several years ago (thank goodnesss) when they passed a "shall issue" law. The Dept of Safety handles it after you've passed the class. Happens to be the same folks who do driver's licenses, hence DMV, and State Troopers, TN Bureau of Investigation, etc.


    My permit took about 3 weeks but that was several years ago. I'd call the Nashville office. Have your copy oif the papeerwork they gave you handy.

    Hey RoadKill, good to talk to you again friend! Correct me if I am wrong, but don't we still have the "shall issue period"? Meaning after 90 (or is it 120) days they have to issue it? Been a while since I looked at that portion.
