Florida Concealed Carry Permits Now Can Be Renewed Online

Good news for Florida permit holders.


Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, whose office regulates the Sunshine State’s more than 1.6 million permit holders, announced Wednesday that renewals could be processed online.

“My goal is to make applying for or renewing a Florida concealed weapon license as convenient as possible, and this new online feature gives license holders another option when renewing,” Putnam said in a statement.

Licenses can be renewed at the agency’s website and those seeking to do so will need their renewal paperwork, which is mailed out an average of 150 days before the permit expires. The new process is optional and does not add any additional fees to the renewal.

Florida, which broke one million concealed carry permits issued in 2012, has consistently made it easier to obtain and maintain a license by dropping fees and speeding up processing while expanding the number of locations where paperwork could be filed statewide.
