Default Ventura County Renewal Process- PSA

TL;DR- Turn in your renewal 6 months before your permit expires.

Just turned in my renewal at the VCSO. On the application it says "no longer than 120 days and no less than 90 days from your expiration date. I'm at 99 days from expiration.

When I asked the clerk how long it would take,

she said "Renewals are taking about 4 months right now"

*blank stare from me*

Her- "Yeah you're probably not going to make it."

Me- "What am I supposed to do?"

Her- "You can't carry."

Me- "I don't mean to be rude, but it says right on the application 90-120 days. You guys might want to change that."

Her- "Yeah we got an influx of renewals so it's taking more like 4 months to get your phone interview, then you have to do training and wait for your appointment to come in and get your card. You're probably not going to make it."

I can't say I'm surprised, just once again disappointed by the absolute lack of organization when it comes to CCW here.

Yeah yeah I know I should be thankful I can get it at all given the state I'm in, but still.

FYI...I just spoke to the CCW unit at VCSD, and was told this is not true. They are currently at a 90 day window. Additionally, if you turn in the renewal before 120 days, it will be rejected.

I turned in my renewal application on a Friday, exactly 93 days before my license would have expired. Day 91 would have been a Monday, but since it was a legal holiday, and day 90, a Tuesday, was not an option to turn it in, I "almost" missed the boat.

Got my phone interview about 2 weeks later (while driving). Took about 5 minutes. Did renewal class and qualification a couple weeks later. THEREAFTER I had to wait a few weeks to pick up my hard card, but I was still within the 90-day window.

My permit expired last Saturday. Received the approval for renewal letter maybe 2 weeks before. Last Friday I completed the class and shoot. Sunday I emailed VCSD inquiring about setting up an appointment to pick up my hard card. Hoping for an email or call to set it up.

Anyone have an idea how long to expect a response and if they'll reach out by emailing back or calling?

VCSO will email you back (usually within 3-4 days) and give you the first available date and time. Expect the first available date and time to be about 2 weeks out at this point in time.

Can someone ask them if and when they're going to switch over to an online application process? Other IAs that have done that don't even require an appointment for renewals -- you do it all online from home!

It saves both the applicant and the IA time, money and effort.

Let’s hope they eventually go online. Would be a lot easier for everyone.

Yes he did and it's a valid question in all four Counties.

In fact it's a valid question in ALL counties that do not currently do online apps and renewals.

In case anyone is wondering, about 9 days after emailing the VCSD, they emailed me back with an appt for next week. Tuesday I pick up my hard card. They told I just need to give them a CADL and 5 minutes of my time.
