  1. It is total horse hocky that they have not even attempted to fix this problem. They know there is a problem, but since its for people that didnt vote for Pritzker, they dont care. They are letting it go just to aggravate the populace. We are being denied our rights. Hours of time on hold and then get hung up on. The politicians now longer work for us, and they dont care. This is a shame and should be remembered the next time they need our help or vote.
  2. I have told possible students not to apply for Illinois out-of-state licenses. I had a student take the course, apply for license with $300 fee, receive license 120 days later, and then get a notice from ISP 30 days later. Your state is no longer one of the accepted similar training and your license is no longer valid. No refund or even a "Sorry, but kiss my *ss". I do not condone ripping off citizens and will not participate in scams. That was wrong and they should have returned the honest citizens money.
  3. My FOID renewal took about 5 weeks, and my CCL renewal is still running after 1-2-2019 application date. I also called the ISP Directors office when my supposedly free to active duty FOID application still charged me $10 no matter what I did. The gentleman that answered the line told me "No problem, we will make sure you get your fee refunded". Nothing yet.
  4. Forgot to mention that the letters and envelopes that had the denial letter and the FOID card in them arrived in the second week of May and had a November postmark on them. So evidently the ISP postmarked them and then did not mail them for over 6 months. Or they misplaced them for 6 months. Also have not received a call back yet for the calls we made to the ISP on May 9 and it is now the 16th. They wonder why we complain about the terrible customer service of the state of Illinois offices?
  5. Thanks, as usual, you are the best! And to the other replies, this was a denial for something over 5 years ago as a teenager, and not a revocation. I will update when I can.
  6. My daughter just got her notice in the mail, that she was denied a FOID card due to her being seen by a mental health care professional in March 2009 while she was15 and 16 years old. Since then, she has gotten everything straightened out, purchased her own home and has a 3 year old little boy and now works as a LPN at the same facility where she was seen. But she also got a FOID card in the mail the same day as the denial letter. I called the ISP number about this and left a message several days ago, with no return call as of yet. I ran the number on the FOID card thru the ISP check screen, and it comes back as not valid. What do you guys think about this one? I am holding the denial letter and the FOID card in my hands. And it took only 6 months for them to reply to her application at all.
  7. Emailed mine after renewal, but have not gotten any reply at all. Will just have to wait and see. I am still on the list as good.
  8. License came in standard envelope with ISP return address in Springfield and came 1st class mail, postmarked Feb 28. They used my drivers license photo and the license number had nothing to do with my application number that showed on application. Card feels like drivers license in plastic coating. And I bet the mailman or lady is either feeling more loved or hated today than most, finding dozens of pacing patrons standing in the door waiting anxiously.
