I sent a form to an outside agency for background check. They sent their results to Ky. BON, as I recall. Seems like it took about 3-4 weeks for the Board to get all the documentation they required to issue my license. Hope this helps.
The background check was really really fast. I just wanted to let everyone know in case anyone else had a similar concern. I mailed the request form on Tuesday and received the background check on Saturday! Thanks to everyone who responded.
