Default P0442-bad fuel cap

I have a 2003 Vue-V6. On the fuel cap the rubber gaskets were all cracked and Code P0442 was placed and the SES Light illuminated. How long until the computer sees the Gas Cap was replaced and everything is operating properly and the SES light turns off?

Ideally the code should be erased with a scan tool.
If not the light will go off when the car has done enough drive cycles for the system to have done enough self checks or tests with the conditions that set the code not coming back. I don't know for how many drive cycles this code needs but typically it can be 40-50 drive cycles.
