    Washington state CPL and civil penalties

    I applied for my WA state CPL about 3 weeks ago and still haven't received it. I also recently found out that I have 3 total toll violations where my car (registered in VA as I am military) passed through the video toll roads. (wife on all 3 occasions) all three were tagged with civil penalties because I did not pay them within the time frame. (they mailed them to my VA address where my car is registered, I do not have to change vehicle registration because I am a soldier) with all of the delinquent, I am wondering if that results in a warrant? WA state CPL applications says that ANY warrant by ANY court results in denial of the CPL. I have a hearing about it and as far as I know it is NOT anything criminal, just civil. I have yet to receive any kind of notification about the CPL.
    Can overdue civil penalty fees result in a denial of CPL in WA? Does anyone know?

    First post by the way. I am new, but will be around. I just bought my first pistol a month ago (Glock 23) and am looking to protect myself and my family.

    First off welcome to the site from Maryland . You should be able to get this fixed but it may take a bit of discomfort . You will just have to provide a paper-trail on your new address and moves and of coarse pay the fines and penalties .

    If it goes as far as a warrant, then I would think they would deny your app. If it has not, then you may be good to go.

    I am assuming you are dealing with EZ Pass.

    If so, call them, do not do the mail/email thing it is a lot easier to get it handled over the phone. Usually they will waive the late fees for your first (and sometimes third and fourth, believe me I know) when you describe your circumstances and what happened. I have had some good experiences with them to my complete shock.

    Get them to the bottom line for the tolls due, pay it with a card, get the transaction # verbally and get them to send you a receipt email/snail mail.

    Even if this doesn't affect your CPL you want to get this cleared up immediately. EZ Pass will send it to VA State collections and then they add interest, additional late fees, etc.... and are not as pleasant or as flexible to deal with.

    Good luck, welcome to the forum and thanks for your service.

    by law, Washington State is supposed to issue the CPL within 30 days, and in my experience, it often takes the entire time, or nearly so, to receive it. i expect you will get it in the next week.

    i've heard that they're changing to a plastic, drivers license size permit, but if you still get a paper one, i recommend careful folding, then laminating it in plastic (Kinko's has the resources), otherwise it wears quickly.

    Welcome from Central Washington!!! It took 3 weeks for me to get mine but that will likely vary city to city in Washington. I would give it another week and then check with the Police Department that you filed it with to determine the status. +1 for folding and laminating the card. I received the paper version and laminated it the same day because if you don't it looks like it will be illegible in no time at all. Good luck and thank you for your service!!!
