How long is a Florida Concealed Weapons Permit Valid for?

How long is my Concealed Carry Permit valid for? 


Your Florida concealed carry permit is valid for 7 years. If you move out of State during this period I strongly recommend you keep your concealed weapon permit valid. You will need to change your permit from a resident status to a non-resident status, but it is always worth having a Florida CWP because it is reciprocal with so many other States.

If you decide to renew your permit the process is very simple. The Department of Agriculture is supposed to send you a renewal form with instructions by mail. Don’t count on this happening,  it's your responsibility to renew your permit before it expires. You can renew your permit in person at one of the regional offices or by mail.

If your permit expires you will have up to 6 months to renew before you have to start the process over again. By that I mean,  take another concealed carry class. If this is you, take a look at out Concealed Weapons Permit class schedule here.


Hope this helps!
