The Bureaucracy of Barber Licensing

bureaucrat_2I tested on January 8, 2015 and passed…but I did not get my license.  The State says because the school did not file my POT (or Proof of Training).  Ummmm…they HAD to file it to get me a test date.

Well, it IS the State.  I will wait “up to 14 days” and then “…if not yet received email us” which I did today (two weeks after passing both board exams).

Today Lisa from the Board of Barbering and Cosmetology says this:

I will request your license today and it will arrive in 5-7 business days. I apologize for the delay.


Wow Lisa…and the State of California…thanks for the sense of urgency, responsibility and empathy.  That will be around 3 weeks from passing my exams.
