Your expired permit is not valid after it expires and you cannot use its benifits, and cannot exercise the benefits until the new one arrives. If you wait beyond the 60 day grace period allowed by law you will be required to submit a new application this includes submitting new prints and an entire new appliation. It could take several days or even a weeks before renewal applications are processed once they are received by DPS. So if you wait until day 50 to mail off your renewal, it may be too late.
