    How long did it take YOU to receive your CPL?

    DOL website says up to 30 days, but I'm now on day 28 and getting very impatient. Care to chime in?

    In what city or county?

  4. Any skeletons in your closet that would've slowed the background process? Any out of state issues?

    In my case it took just over 45 days. now that was back in 2010. I would suspect it might be that or longer with more ccl being sent out as the applications increase

    No skeletons. Legally, that is. LOL. King County / Auburn, specifically.

  7. Some agencies will complete their backgrounds in a few days and then let them sit till just before the 30 day window and then send them out. For some reason, some agencies have interpreted the 30 day rule as 'it WILL take 30 days no matter what'

    Once your paperwork gets started, it only takes a few minutes to complete the background --- unless there are the aforementioned skeletons ;)

    WOW! Guess what came in the mail today! Day 29. Went home on my lunch break and there was my CPL. It's now laminated and in my wallet.

  9. It's a good idea to laminate it.. SOOOO many people don't and they return for a replacement with a balled up clump of crap that was their CPL after one trip thru the washing machine

    It's so annoying that they use paper permits... Once laminated it becomes much bigger than a credit card and hard to fit in a wallet. I have 4 permits from various states and WA is the only one that's paper.

  11. I couldn't agree more... the new Washington CPLs are a LITTLE sturdier and once laminated conform to the universal credit card dimensions..

    it's a small step forward, but I wish we'd issue them on plastic stock like a driver license or credit card..
