NOTE: This is not a joke. I am not being sarcastic.
It is entirely possible that they are checking to make sure you have paid your debt to society. Many people jump bail, and they take extra time to make sure there are no outstanding wants or warrants out for you as a result of your arrest. If the case was dropped for whatever reason they will find that and issue the card.
I am sincerely hoping your parents did not apply to have the record sealed. That will drag things out even longer.
