It took me MONTHS, if not a year to get the compact NJ license. And my license was already NJ and I live in NJ so they messed it up from the start as it should’ve been compact right away but I had to pay extra AND they changed my expiration to a year earlier 🙄🙄
I just moved from MO to FL and I applied for my FL license online ! Cost 110$
Then I needed digital fingerprints another 80$
If you worked in NJ you need your former work HR fill out how long you worked there and it’s a special form which they have to send to State Board if FL ! All together I had this done in about 2 and a half weeks !
It took me four months, Applied beginning of January 05, 2022 and just received it the week of 04/18/2022. I'm reading it can take as long as six months.
If you have a compact license, it is automatic.
