I am headed down this weekend to spend some time with my dad for a while. I called and have an appointment for next Thursday afternoon for the application and printing.
Anyone know how long it takes there and now log it takes for approve/deny results?
And do they mail the permit or require an in-person pickup?
Some sort of training course with live fire qualifying. Similiar to NRA Basic Pistol Course.
Application completed, fingerprints, passport type photo, copy of your DL, everything notarized and send off with payment.
Mine took a little over 60 days. They will mail it to you.
It's hard to say for sure. My wife and I both sent our applications in on the same day in Mid-March. My permit was issued on 5/16. She is still waiting on hers.
I've heard that it was quicker if you went in person but for a while the wait to get an appointment was close to three months.
How long ago did you make the appointment?
Sorry to say but it varies from person to person for some reason. But unless it is faster now than a couple of months ago it can take up to 90 days. Some get it a bit quicker some not so much.
Filling out application covers the training. Is is one of the question and says send copy of proof.
I called them about 15:30 from work. Asked if I could get an appointment next week. She said morning or afternoon. I said afternoon. She said how about Monday. I said how about later in the week. She said how about 2:30 on Thursday? I said see you on Thursday.
I was curious about the delay as I need to get the FL permit so I can get the Utah one rolling. Stupid WI doesn't recognize the FL CCW but does the UT one. So I have to get 2 :(
I don't follow you here. Why do you need a FL before you get UT? If you have a WI permit that (and the 4 hour class, fingerprints, etc...) are all you need for UT. If you don't have a WI permit then you have to get that before you can get a UT permit.
I live in a "May Issue" state that is so Effed up that Utah says don't bother with trying to get your permit from your home state first, we feel sorry for your dumb butt...
Just have to get my NRA Pistol class in first.
For both the wife and I filing from the Agricultural office with the electronic print took about 8 day for the permit to arrive in the mail.
Less than two weeks after the in-office appointment. YMMV
I have a residence here in WI and one in FL. I have had a FL ID/DL since I was 16 and its my "home". I still have the house I grew up in down in FL. As soon as I can convince the mother of my granddaughters to get the hell out of WI, I would love to pick up and be 100% Florida again.
Curious, where (about) did your dad move to? I grew up and my dad still lives in Ft Walton Beach (panhandle).
Wow! A heck of a variance here...from 8 days to 90+. Good grief. I suppose the backlog ebbs and flows like the tide. Not too much panic right now so I am hoping its closer to 8 than 90 ;) Doesn't matter right now though, still saving and shopping for my Sig. Gotta find just the right one.
the thing that holds up your application is usually the fingerprints. By all means do the electronic fingerprinting which you can have done at most police or sheriff departments.
I helped a coworker fill out her app a couple of months ago and she did the electronic prints and got hers in about three weeks.
