TN Online Permit Status

Recommended Posts

Hey can you guys tell me how to check my permit status online? I can't seem to get to the right link. I'm waiting on my original permit, not a renewal. Many thanks!

You'll need the confirmation number emailed to you when you first signed up. Once everything is complete, after you log in, It will just say you're approved and need to wait for it in the mail. Mine took 10 business days.

Thanks for the feedback. I actually applied at the DMV and not online. I thought maybe I could check status. I had no idea you could apply online. That would have saved me a half day...

Not available online.

 

It is now, for first time applicants who start process that way.

 

But the info for the link doesn't seem to exist anywhere on tn.gov site, you just have to know it's there. Apparently some HCP instructors are hip to it and giving it out, though looks like you can apply before you take course, IF you know where link is?

I applied online, took the carry class the following weekend. Then a week later I went to the DMV, got photo'd and then fingerprinted that same day. Pretty quick process overall. Waiting for it in the mail was the excruciating part.

Wish we could renew online.....

 

I think that DMV would probably LOVE that. I get the feeling that they view HCP processing as a nuisance. Hopefully by the time my next renewal is up, 2-3 years from now, perhaps online renewal will be a reality at that point.

 

The "double secret" online application appears to be a step in the right direction.

Good news! I did read on the back of my permit   "Save time, renew online."  :usa:

 

Well, my newest one from a year ago says that too. Wonder if they'll actually have it implemented three years from now when I have to do it again?

It's the dmv. Anything that doesn't involve sitting and scratching butt is a nuisance.

Here's the link to check your status, after you've applied on-line. Class on Saturday, finger prints Monday afternoon, after a hour and half wait at the DMV. We'll see how long it takes to arrive in the mail. 

 

Props to On Target and their class by Detective Ashley.

Can't you renew via mail, seems to me I remember them using my newest driver's license picture to do that via mail last year, or am I dreaming?

Just renewed my diver's license online, they said they would use my latest picture, good thing I am not aging any...

Tennessee has updated their .gov website and the new way to check your application status is:

-Sign in using your information

-Click "Handgun Permits" Tab

-Select "View Handgun Application Status"

-If it is approved, you will see this message,"Your application process has been approved. You should receive the card in the mail within ten (10) business days from the date of issuance."

I submitted fingerprints on the 12th and it shows approved today. Now I just have to wait for it to show up.
