How do I obtain a temporary permit?

""

What is the status of my CCW application?

""

The application process takes about 12 weeks. Background investigations with local police agencies and the federal government are the most time consuming. Once that process is completed, new applicants will be scheduled to appear in front of the Concealed Weapon Licensing Board. If you are a renewal applicant and the background investigation does not show anything, your permit will be mailed to you.
