Someone else can complain about the '4 copies' thing, but personally I don't care. When I went to do it, I went to the website and read the requirements, got the application notarized and copied elsewhere, and showed up with everything the way they request.
And, of course, they were willing to give me the temporary permit when I showed up and asked for it on day 47.
Having read on the website the ridiculous fingerprinting hours, I arrived at the courthouse to apply at the beginning of those hours.
For me at least, the 'requirements' were no additional burden, so I'm not going to complain. When I see these 'requirements', what I feel most is lucky because I have heard stories of the application process in other states where people are routinely denied based on the whim of some official. Here, I followed the instructions and easily got the permit, and aside from perhaps a very minor misreading, the process conformed with the law.
