i just applied for my Washington CPL. being that i am not officially a resident of washington yet(been here less than 90 days), will it actually take the entire 60 days to get my permit? or do they just give that as an outside time frame, and it usually comes faster? also do they mail it to my house, or will i have to go down to the police dept to pick it up.

Mine was in my mailbox 48 hours later.

Its normally 30 days, and I got mine on day 30. In the mail. I got my WA DL first, then went and applied.

State Website


The processing time varies, however, the license should be issued within 30 days of applying. If the person does not have a valid permanent Washington driver's license or Washington State identification card or has not been a resident of the state for the previous consecutive ninety days, the issuing agency may take up to sixty days to issue the license.

I was told 30 days and it was in my mailbox on day 24. WA is a lot better about the CPL than is OR. OR takes evry bit of the 60 days. Just one more reason to not live there.

I really think it depends on the jurisdiction. Renton told me 10 business days for my renewal, and it took exactly 10 business days.

I does depend on your jurisdiction. Mason Co took about a week for me.

I'd gladly wait that extra 36 days if it meant I could own an M16, RDIAS, or other Class III goodies.

They have up to 60 days to issue it, how long it takes within that time frame is basically up to the issuers discretion.


When I had applied for mine and not gotten it with in the specified 30 day limit, I called on about day #33 and they found it had been filed in the "60 day wait drawer" Looks like maybe the King Country Sheriff downtown Seattle office has a system in place to take all the time that the can.

Yeah, it'll probably take you the full time.

When I got mine, I called up about a week after I did the app, and they told me I couldn't come and get it until the 30 days was up. (This was before I knew how to bitch at them)

I asked them if there was any way I could get it sooner. They said come down during the day and ask the Chief, so I did and he gave it to me saying I didn't have to talk to him, the receptionist was just a moron.


On the other hand, a friend of mine in Kitsap County got his in the mail the day after he filled out the app.

Just different with each area.

I will second that!!!

OR-Non-Res took right at 30 days for me??? Multnomah County is supposed to be one of the slower turn arounds from what I hear also....

oregon doesn't accept a washington cpl? in that case, how much does the oregon non-res permit cost. don't plan on going that way anytime soon, but if i do have to eventually, i would feel better knowing i wouldn't have to go defensless

Correct, OR does not accept the WA Cpl. I beleive my OR non-res permit cost me $60. Unless you work in Multnomah county I don't think that OR, at least Multnomah County, will give you a Cpl. In a previous thread I remember someone mentioning that the sheriff in the county where Astoria is located is very pro-gun and will grant non-res Cpl's. HTH

Mine was in the City of Tacoma and took all of 2 days(4 years ago). My wifes took 2 days in Snohomish County, last year. As for Oregon, try www.packing.org . I know 2 guys who've gotten OR Non Res CPLs, one from Pendleton and one from Astoria. Minor hoop jumping and some cash and it was a done deal. As lil as I go to OR I don't have one, but that doesnt mean I'm not armed. HTH

I got my CPL in Redmond a few years ago, after I was printed and did the paper work they said it would take up to 30 days or something. So I drove home and by the time I got home (20 minutes) I have a message on my answering machine that my CPL was ready for me to pick up. So I was surprised to say the least. I wish everything else was as fast with government.
