Concealed Weapon License Application

First Time Concealed Weapon License Application.

If you are interested in applying for a concealed weapon license, you can now visit our North Tampa office and apply in person using our CW Intake System.

The Concealed Weapon Intake System (CWIS) streamlines the application screening and review process, which reduces the time it takes the FL Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to issue a license once the application package arrives in Tallahassee.

Follow these steps to apply for your Concealed Weapons License.

NOTE: Notary no longer required effective 7/1/16 – Legislation will take effect on July 1, 2016 ending the requirement for notarization of all new Florida Concealed Weapon or Firearm License applications. Applications continue to be submitted under oath and subject to criminal penalties for falsification or misrepresentation pursuant to Section 837.06, Florida Statutes.
