Application Status Checks
The processing time for a license is 30 days after receipt of a complete application packet. An initial tiered license application is not complete until PELSB receives a cleared background check.
Please wait at least 30 days before contacting PELSB for an application status check. PELSB licensing staff will contact applicants with questions or updates about applications when necessary.
