I’m also in MD.  You can get copies the same day you complete the paperwork (and are entered into the system).  

EDIT: I guess it depends on how quickly they get to it if it was mailed in.  But you should be able to walk into the local clerks office and request a sealed copy.

I’m in MA so don’t know if it’s the same, but I was able to get a copy of my license the same day I dropped off the paperwork.

Depends on your state.  I got my certified copies the day I dropped it off at the courthouse.  I’m in DC
