Depends on the state. It took nearly 6 weeks for mine to be issued. Some states complete all the authorizations & checks before permitting you to take the exam and thus once you pass you're issued a license. Other states, like mine, issue ATT then have to wait for fingerprinting and SBI/FBI background check, wait for results, then send the package to the BoN committee to approve issuing a license.
Some states like CA won't issue a license until you receive your letter and then pay a fee.
im in ny. we got issued an ATT and did the whole fingerprinting thing to take the boards. i know it takes about a month for them to send you your actual license, i just thought my name and license number would be on the BON website by now.
i dont know im getting skeptical, this other girl in my class got hers two weeks after taking it, here i am about a lil over a month and still dont have mine. im going to call pearson vue tomorrow. and i only studied for a week. about 3600 practice questions
