I took mine Thursday morning and got results Saturday morning so not before 48 hours. Depending on when your area posts on BON you could see your license show up before the results. I had a friend who took the exam Tuesday and saw his license on BON Wednesday and then got quick results Thursday. I did the pvt trick and it did ease my mind a little to get the good pop up before I got the official results on Saturday but I knew to take the pvt lightly. If you do the pvt you have to enter all your cc info and press submit to get the good pop up. I was discouraged the first time I did it because i thought if they let you ever in your cc info at all that means you failed (not so).
