Let's see...
6/12/20 - Applied
7/10-20 - Fingerprints (Had to drive down to Rensselaer, everything in NWI was booked)
7/18/20 - Paid Local Fee
7/18/20 - Took my paperwork to the local police station.

The lady I spoke with said the wait from that point is around 3 weeks so I'm hoping I get lucky and it's processed sooner.

7/2/2020 Applied

~8/18/2020 Earliest fingerprint appointment (Egad!)

7/19/2020 Informed the location I made my appointment at has "unexpectedly closed" and I need to reschedule

~9/17/2020 New fingerprint appointment (Double egad!)


Is there really no other way to get fingerprints done? Is there any push to get something done at the state level or are we just riding out the demand (double demand really, with permits becoming free at the same time as riots)

I'm not really being impatient, I just moved here from IL and over there you need to pull strings (if you have them) and file lawsuits just to get anything done lol

You can go anywhere and get fingerprinted. Look around and see if you can get one sooner in a different town.

By "go anywhere" do you mean to any Identogo location, or any fingerprint vendor? Only earlier one I saw with Identogo was Rensselaer (like Dulla) which is an hour away but I get in two weeks earlier, which still isn't great :(

If I can go to any fingerprint vendor I will have to see what is available...

It's actually a pretty nice drive to Rensselaer. Took me about an hour too. If you go watch out for speed traps on the 65!

7/23/20 - Received an email that I have no criminal history and my application has been submitted to ISP by my local authority and I should receive my license within 60 days.

Time for my favorite activity! waiting...:(

5 year is free now except for fingerprints I believe.

I went with the lifetime so 75.00 state, fingerprint fee (around 11 bucks) and 50.00 local

If you're looking for an earlier fingerprinting appointment look at Bloomington. I saw an available date as early as 21 August. Earliest I saw when Sheryl was filling out her application this evening was 24 September in Hendricks County.

Has anyone with a lifetime license applied for a five year? If you have, did you use your existing account or create a new one?

When I got my lifetime they hadn't gone to the current system. Fingerprints for my 5-year were done today. I applied on 2 July and this was one of the earliest dates (on Madison Avenue on the south-side.) I'll go to my local PD Monday.

Did they at least get your info to keep from having to come back?

They can still mark it as "Applicant Visited" even with the fingerprints showing as pending. That does trigger a reminder in the workflow for downstate to check on the fingerprints status.

The agency will still have to go back after they get it figured out downstate to submit the final application, but we just have a list we check daily to transmit those that get caught up.

It updated late this afternoon. Showed pending fingerprints about 1430.
