    Lead time for license renewal?

    Handbook says license must be renewed within 30 days after expiration but seems to leave a lot to chance. How long before expiration would you recommend submitting renewal paperwork ?

    I don't remember how far in advance you can start, but I believe you have to wait to get notified by mail before you do.

    Having said that, get your ducks in a row ASAP. The NCPLS actually called me asking if I had moved, because my renewal paperwork got bounced back to them. Must have been an Anti in the USPS, because she read my address back perfectly correct. So, I finally get my paperwork (couldn't renew online, because the system was "down" for a good period of time over this past summer) and I go in person because stupid me is honest about some meds I had taken for an injury and minor surgery I had since my last renewal. I end up going into the grace period, and had to physically go to three of the doctors offices to get them to write a note saying what I took the meds for, for how long, and if I was still taking them. My luck, my ENT went on vacation. Let's just say I cut it close. At least all my guns were listed this time, not like my last renewal.

    My wife did not have her license at the time, and I was informed by a local FFL that they couldn't be transferred to someone in the same household anyway.

      4 years ago, I got my renewal paperwork in the mail about 30 days before it was due. I renewed online, and got my plastic (for the first time) card in about 2 weeks. It was actually easier than the DMV (I think I just threw up a little).

      The previous time I was there was when they lost a serial number off my paper card. That sucked!

        I renewed online (Nassau). It went very quickly. Why put it off?
        Exercise the Bill of Rights. It's good for your Constitution.

            IIRC, you have to wait to get your package from NCPLS. I believe it contains a PIN for you to renew online.

              I hand carried my last one in to Suffolk. Painless, was mailed back to me within about 2 weeks.

              Now if they would only move into the 20th century and accept credit cards at PLB.

                My license expires in May. Is it true that you have to wait to be contacted by mail before renewing online?

                  Yes. There is a PIN code in the package you'll need to renew online.

                      HQ is not processing any new applicants, but still going to be processing all renewals.

                      PS - you're still good for a 30day grace period upon expiration.

                          Nassau; Renewed online, right before Coronageddon. It was surprisingly fast, few days.

                            Online renewal has typically been fast, and in person not far off, but you are having to go there instead.

                              Are they closed entirely or still working?
