    Talking FL is still very speedy

    This is my obligatory "It's Here!" thread - this was a renewal.

    Back in 2005, I mailed my application on 1/31, having done the E-prints on 1/28. My permit was issued 2/9, and received on 2/12. I thought that was pretty good.

    I was a bit worried after seeing so many threads about how many applications FL was processing and how long it was taking, so I hustled when I got the renewal papers with the "allow 10-12 weeks processing time".

    I went to CVS and had my passport photos done, filled out the application, wrote a check for $65, and mailed the whole shebang on 10/26/09, regular mail.
    My check was deposited on 10/30, and cleared 11/02.

    My permit was mailed 11/9, and received today, 10/12.
    I'm good until 2/09/2017.

    I guess the backlog has been cleared, or they give priority to renewals. Gotta love this state. (Especially after 30 years of the MA icicle.)

    I have to add one more thing. I just looked again at the origianl permit, and it shows an issue date of 2/09/2006.

    I never noticed that until just now.

    Apparently, I walked around with my permit for a full year before it was issued!

    Congrats...Sounds like the backlog is clearing up...I wish it would go that fast in TX, but things are really backed up here...

    From what I hear Florida opened up regional walk in centers to help facilitate the process and decrease the log jam in Tallahassee.

    Yes, FL is getting better. A friend of mine got her permit for a couple of weeks ago. It took less than three weeks from the day she mailed the papers until she received the permit by mail. That was a big surprise! I do not know what they did, but whatever it was it worked.

    Well, maybe and maybe not. FL cashed my check July 1. Still no permit as of today approaching 5 months. I'm not very happy hearing stories like "I got my permit in 60 days". I even called and they told me another month. Backlog cleared? I think not.

    I had a friend who files about 25 days after my wife and got his much earlier...so for us, we just figured they were out of control!

    This may be the fastest in history.
    You received it 27 days BEFORE you mailed it.

    Great news!

    My last renewal took 10 days door to door(2006), but my wife's renewal took almost 110 days(2008).
    Sound like things are getting much better now.

    Was visiting Orlando, walked into the regional office on Nov 3, waited 30 mins, then they took me as part of the 1000h group. Took 35 mins to do the web stuff and the finger-printing and photo. Drove back to Virginia Nov 11, and my permit was waiting for me in my mailbox. Wow.
