My license was in my mail today!

Did you reapply from scratch? I thought I had read for bad certs they gave you a chance just to upload a corrected cert via a fix link. Previous posts have indicated it usually does not pick up at existing day count but may start over. I could be wrong since Ive never dealt with that.

 

Sadly at the quality control data verification step, you may not be that far along in the process anyway.

i didnt have to reapply from scratch, but i uploaded the forms and that was it. I hope I dont have to wait another 4 months.

4 full months to tell someone their cert is wrong?

Sad isn’t the word that should be used in this case.

And if he wasn’t that far into the process, how much longer could it have been?

Unfortunately he is likely to start over from scratch if the fix cert link wasn’t used.

I’d be p***** for sure. But as everyone is stating these days, “It’s Illinois what cha going to do?”

yea its very frustrating. I used the link provided on the website to re-upload the cert. hopefully I wont have to wait 4 more months. Maybe a moderator or someone in office can look into this to help me out?

A USCCA cert? One should always read or at least scan whatever they are signing. As for the instructor...a big fail if producing certs for an entire completed class to sign.

I never signed anything initially. I signed up for his class and met with him and another student privately at his office. We completed the course over the weekend, took pictures for the site and he uploaded the USCCA cert from his computer. It wasn't until I was rejected and contacted him that he gave me the proper form with the curriculum ID, the hours completed, and instructor ID number. When I looked him up online, his credentials all checked out.

When I did my 3hr renewal class in the fall of 2019 my instructor submitted the copy of my certificate and there was one number that was off on the curriculum number. So the state waits until I'm at 121 days before they reject my application. There was a button for resubmitting the proper curriculum number which was done by my instructor less than 24 hours after my application was rejected. I finally went active at precisely 240 days and received my new license a few days later. Fortunately we are allowed to continue carrying on an expired license as long as the renewal process is started before the expiration date. I did not do prints in 2014 and received my original license after 97 days. I also didn't do prints in 2019 either. Unless they make prints mandatory I will not be doing them in the future as well. Brobinson65, I hope your situation is rectified soon and you get your license shortly.

Thanks for the clarity toolmaker!

Illinois State Police firearms services bureau has automatic message that says to expect the following wait times:

 

1. Average processing time for FOID applications - 122 days

2. Average CCW application processing times, with prints, are 139 days.

3. Average CCW application processing times, without prints, are 160 days.

 

These are averages so ours may take even longer.
