Default Kern county newbe

I am new to Kern county. I came from San Bernardino county and turned in my Kern CCW app today (4-23-2018). I have 2 questions.
1- How long is it taking from turning in the app to permit in hand?
2- What all does the $159 cover? (Fingerprints, administration, range, ???)

Thanks, Ron

The timeline can vary greatly, and changes fairly frequently. I know of one applicant who turned in an app in mid June 2016....it took approximately one month to get the approval letter....after taking the class and obtaining the certificate, went back to get the livescan and pay fees at the end of July......he didn't get his call to pick up his permit till the end of December.

Just a couple months later, two people that I used to work with applied for their permits.....both had their permits in hand within six to eight weeks from turning in the application. (This was Jan/Feb/March 2017).

I just heard of another guy who had applied recently, I'm not sure exactly what stage of the process he's in, if he's only turned in the app and waiting for approval, or if he's already done the livescan.....but I believe he was going on about ten weeks or so. So it sounds like the process has slowed down from what it was around this time last year, but I don't have anything very precise, currently.

$159 is only the app and live scan and does not cover range. By range I'm assuming you mean the initial CCW course you'll need to take assuming you do get approved? It's running at least 5-6 weeks before initial approval right now.

It took me and my wife 6 weeks until the initial approval came in. Taking class June 4th and then we'll see how long it takes for prints and final approval decision.

I think the initial approval means you passed the background check. Here is a list of my times.

I turned in application on 4/23/2018.
I received the approval letter authorizing me to take a training course on 5/17/2018 (24 days)
Did the class and range on 5/19/2018
05/19/18 Class & Range (26 days)
Turn in & class certificate on 05/21/18
Pick up permit on 5/30/2018 (36 days)

Oh ok,
We did it different
1. Shooting Qualification
2. CCW classroom
3. Fillout and turn in application
4. Get live scanned
5. Wait to see if I pass DOJ
6. Go pick up the CCWP
