    Application submitted but drivers license is soon to expire..

    Greetings everyone my names Paul. Ok, let me start out that I am currently active duty MP stationed in Kansas at Ft. Leavenworth. Earlier today I submitted all the information needed for my CCW to the sheriff's department. Now my real question/concern is that I am using an out of state ID that will expire in 10 days, and was just wondering if the Attorney General may look at my application and deny it because of that fact. When I submitted it at the sheriff's department the lady looked over all my information and didn't mention anything so I'm hoping I'm alright. Has anyone experienced the same issue? Has anyone been denied because their license was soon to expire? I will probably call the attorney general tomorrow and ask them if that's a problem I am actually going home on leave in 2 days so I will be getting another license. Any information will help and be greatly appreciated.

    Everyone has a licenses that expire , and they are good till they expire . So what i mean you sent your information in before it expired so it would be good . I don't believe they are looking in the future and saying now this is expired . IMHO

    I was honestly thinking the same thing. I actually just renewed my license online so even if they look deeper into it they will see that I took care of it. I'll have it in the mail in a couple weeks. Thanks for the info, its much appreciated.

    If your DL is from your home of record it does not expire as long as you're in the service and stationed outside of your home state. It is legal for you to have a DL from your home state (expired or not) or one from the state in which you are stationed.

    Thanks for the info everyone. Now starts the waiting game. I've heard from some of the people in my company that the wait time for Kansas is around 30 days.

    It depends on what state your DL is from. Most states don't expire DLs if you're on active duty orders (For CA, I had 30 days after I ETS'ed). Some states don't do that- check your state laws. I was pulled over by a Kansas state trooper and just handed him both my Military ID and my expired DL- he wrote my ticket and moved on.

    On the other hand, my expired CA DL was a very minor issue when I went to get my USAFE/USAREUR DL in Germany- that particular clerk didn't know that my DL was good to go.
