Renewing a Concealed Weapon License

You may begin the renewal process up to 180 days prior to the license expiration date.  Timely renewal is the responsibility of the license holder – but to remind you, the BCI will send a renewal reminder to the last address we have on file. You cannot renew an expired license. 

To renew a Class 1 license, you will need to complete the testing process, just as you did for your initial license. You can “downgrade” to a class 2 license and avoid having to retest by indicating on the application that you would like a class 2 license. You do not have to retest to renew a class 2 license.

  • In order to comply with current federal firearm requirements, the renewed license is valid for five years from the date it is issued

Expired License

If your license has expired, it is not a valid license and cannot be renewed. You will have to start over as a new applicant.

IF YOUR LICENSE HAS EXPIRED, DO NOT CARRY CONCEALED!
