    ATT is just permisson to take exam. Being granted license need to meet ALL BON requirements. BON average response is 2-3 months across US, lengthier in CA, IL, MD, FL, NY due to volume

    You can try following up with them every week or so to check on the status...I wouldn't do it any more frequently than that since it would probably have no effect other than annoying them and making your blood pressure go up. But IMO I see nothing wrong with a little occasional nudge.

    Hope you get a speedy answer.

    I just sent my documents off Tuesday, been checking everyday to check on the status, woke up this morning and I HAVE MY LICENSE!!!! Took them less then a week to come to decision, but I only had an arrest record with no charges filed. GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE IN THIS POSITION, PRAY EVERYDAY BECAUSE I WILL!!!!

    I had an arrest record, but no charges were filed, the case was dropped, this happened 7 years ago when I was away at college.

    Congrats on your license! I shouldnt have allowed myself to listen to the negativity that it would take 4+ months. I too got my licence like a week after I submitted the documents. After 25+ applications, I got my first job today!!! I went in to fill out an app and the administrator walked by right then, overhearing what I was applying for, and asked "do you have time for an interview right now" next thing I knew I was in the DONs office being told "Id like you on our team" Im so excited!!! All that worry and anger over the court stuff for no reason. : )

    I'm in a very similar situation. I had an incident in 2003 that was dismissed and I received the dreadful addt'l document letter. Can anyone give me any advice or email me so we can chat privately. My email preciousone202002@yahoo.comThanks!
