Not yet mate. If I work it out as they say within 10-14 Working Days. Then the earliest (to be safe) would be next Friday 12th (cause we had a public hol) up to the 18th. After that I'll be on the phone to chase it up. Will post when/if it arrives.

8 weeks?! - that sucks big time. Have you chased them up? I won't have that much patience - I've got gear paid for and waiting to be picked up.

Yes mate,phoned them many times
I have had to submit a stat dec saying I have not recieved the card in the post.
Spoke to them a week ago,they say they received the stat dec and will now reprint...hopefully I get it within 10-14 business days.
Yes I also have a nice new Impala Plus 28 inch wood stock bolt action shottie paid for waiting to be picked up.

But can’t posses it until I have the card.
It sucks big time and the staff at WLB do give a damn about their blatant and deliberate incompetence

WLB is part of the “public service” ,their service is very very poor.
My son’s driver licence only took a week to be delivered what’s the difference?


Card in the mail today

Hi All,

I’m a new member here, but stumbled across this forum last night when I was Googling waiting times! I guess it was fortuitous as I actually received my approval email today!

So, to update everyone on the current processing times:

Application Submitted (Cat A/B): 10/09/18
ID Check Requested: 13/10/18
ID Check Completed: 19/10/18
Approval Email: 14/11/18

The approval email indicates the physical licence will be between four and six weeks - but let’s see how we go!

308WIN Tikka T3x TAC A1
