Where to renew

You must renew your concealed pistol license in person at the law enforcement agency where you live:

  • If you live in an unincorporated area of the county, apply at the county sheriff.

What to bring with you

  • Valid, government-issued photo identification (for example, a Washington driver license or ID card).
  • Your current concealed pistol license.

If you were out of state on military orders during the renewal period

To be exempt from late fees, you must provide a copy of your orders showing you were out of state during your license renewal period within 90 days of your return to Washington.

  • The expiration date on your license won’t change. Your renewed license will expire 5 years from the previous expiration date.
