I am in Ca. I had a background issue with an infraction for disturbing the peace. The board had to finish their review prior to releasing my plastic license or a temp. I got my letter requesting additional info from the court in March of 2012. I set my exam for April 27 and my file was approved once they had my results showing that I passed. I got the ok from the board on May 6th and I drove to Sacramento the next business day and paid via check in person. I walked out with my temp license and my hard plastic came in the mail about a week later. So..over all.. the process took about 2 week after they had my passing results..on top of the 2 months they had my additional info from the court. Hope this info helps..but remember, they take each case on a solo basis and your could take a different amount of time. Good luck.
