Renew Your Concealed Weapon License

Note: You Cannot Carry a Concealed Weapon or Firearm After Your License Has Expired.

Your Florida concealed weapon or firearm license is valid for a period of seven years. Approximately 150 days prior to the expiration date of your license, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) will send you a renewal form with complete instructions on how to renew your license.

If you fail to renew your license by its expiration date, you may renew it up to six months after it has expired. However, there is a late fee of $15 for renewing after the expiration date.

If your license has been expired for longer than six months, it cannot be renewed. You must apply for a new license.
