First, verify that you meet the qualifications to apply for a License To Carry (CHL), see section GC 411.172 (Page 5). Then reserve your class using the "BOOK" button below. Bring your handgun of any caliber (above .22LR) and 50 rounds of ammunition. Range fee is included. Once you successfully complete the shooting proficiency test and the classroom portion, you will receive a "Certificate of Training" (LTC-100 Form). After you have completed the application with DPS for a License To Carry, you mail or email it to the DPS LTC Division.
Complete your application for a License To Carry with the TX DPS either before or after you take the License To Carry Course. Once you take the License To Carry course and receive your Certificate of Training, you have 365 days to fill out the application and submit your fingerprints to the DPS. Apply online here: https://txapps.texas.gov/txapp/txdps/chl/ Pay the application fee online using a debit or credit card. Cost of the application fee is $40 for a regular citizen; $25 for Veterans; and $0 for current military and military discharged within the last 12 months. The LTC is good for 5 years. Renewals are done online. The application can also be done by mail, by downloading the application and following the instructions on the DPS LTC website.
