    Just moved to TN, question about background check

    So I just moved to Tennessee from another southern state. I know that to get my permit I have to take a class and then do a background check, yada yada. My question is: Is there anyway I can do the background check before I pay the money to take the class and send in the necessary documentation (and more money) for my background check? I just want to be sure that I will pass the background check before I waste a bunch of my money.

    Thanks

    No. What have you done in the past that leads you to believe you might not pass the background check?

    You have to have the signed paperwork from your HCP class before you can submit an application for your permit at the DMV. The fingerprinting and background check follow this. Don't know if this answers your specific question, but that was the way it worked several years ago.

    Have you purchased a firearm before? If you can pass that background check then you should be able to get your carry permit.

    Sounds like you already know you can't pass one.

    If you have purchased one before, like GoBigOrange said, you should be good to go. That is unless something that you think is questionable may have occured after your last purchase. The TBI will do the background work which will cover all time periods up to the date of check, and anything that has been reported prior to that date would be reflected on it.
