    Angry 163 Days and still waiting

    I'm getting irritated at this point. I mailed for my FL permit back in mid to late Feb. They cashed the check in April, I got a notice in the end of June that they need to verify my citizenship status since I was born overseas. I provided it... it's now August. Almost half a year (double the amount allowable) and I still don't have my permit... I know they are back logged, but would the government be as patient with me about paying my taxes if I was "backlogged" at work?

    I'm not sure what to do at this point. I've called a few times and I'm still "pending"

    Advice?

    You can try the emails. These are supervisors. Some people have had good responses from Ms.Sweet. There are some that have been waiting 175 plus days.

    Try the email. Give it a week before giving in to utter frustration again.

    I got the same notice regarding my citizenship status - I thought "oh great this will delay it another 3 months" - it came about two weeks later.

    Wow and I thought my 3 month wait was bad. I took my class after you and got it before you. Go figure.

    It took my wife ccw application to getting her license about 5-6 months. They said it should only be a 4month wait. Te said her finger prints were messed up so she had to take them again (big inconvenience), but we heard through the grape vine that they were so back logged that this was the only legal means to delay their procedure. Take the last part with a grain of salt, because our intel was from the grape vine.

    Be patient, it is welol worth the wait.
