I think He has a plan for all of this.

When you phoned, did they say something like,

"All of our operators are busy with other clients. Please stay on the line and your call will be answered in sequence. The average wait time is - one hour and ten minutes."

I called a few times and made sure to use my cellphone. I propped it up beside my laptop, turned on some music and surfed the Internets.

Today I get back my application, The picture is alright, the kicker is, I'm to attach proff, I passed the safety test. It's been eleven years, and if I had not passed would I have a PAL? mad

Hi wabigoo, I hope you are doing well young man :o)

Why would you have to take a test??

Last time I renewed my license I forgot to renew it, so it lapsed. I only found out it lasped when I went to buy shells for the hunting season. You would not believe the BS I had to go through to get it renewed, it took me 6 months to get the new one back!

I have a Possession and Acquisition License.

Thank you ~ KB

It's been ten years since I took, and passed the test. As I said, I would not have a PAL if I had not passed it! All the proof they want is in their computer. crazy

You need to talk with a human. It's a pain, but it's best to phone on Monday.

I just think it's bureaucracy at work. There aren't too many countries in the world whose government employees are efficient. I wish it was not so. It's not the people. It's the procedures that are put in place that they have to follow.

Keep trying to talk with a human.

Here is my question, when should we start the application process, 1 year before your PAL is set to expire?

Thanks ~ KB

I just renewed mine in Sept, took about 6 weeks, I needed it by November.

I always get my picture taken at Pharmacy, 20 bucks, they have all the criteria for the photo and I am hoping there isn't any screw ups.

I'm thinking 6 months previous to expiring is lots of time to apply but, it may not be enough sounds like.

Hi 673, thanks for the info, this time I will not make the same mistake! Just checked mine expires in 2025, so I have lots of time

Have a great evening in beautiful BC ~ KB
