After 45 days by state law they are required to give you a temporary permit.
Go down to where you applied and ask for it.
Unfortunately a lot of cities make you wait for the whole 45 days. Not because it actually takes that long, but because they have contempt for people carrying and they are gonna make you wait as long as they can.
In some VA cities it takes 10 days and you get your permit.
