To find out what services will be effected, see Possible suspension of services starting July 1.

Things to know

  • Licenses expire every 5 years.
  • You can renew your license 90 days before it expires.

  • Late renewal fee (up to 90 days after expiration): $42
  • If your license is more than 90 days past its expiration, you must apply for a new license.

How to renew

You must renew your concealed pistol license in person at your local law enforcement agency. The requirements and procedures are the same as getting your CPL, except:

  • You don’t need to get fingerprinted
  • You should receive your license within 2 weeks
    • To check the status of your renewal, contact the law enforcement agency where you applied for your renewal.

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

You have 90 days after returning to Washington from out‑of‑state military service to renew your concealed pistol license.
