Ohio Concealed Carry License Application Process

5 Steps to Getting an Ohio Concealed Handgun License:

1. Verify that you are eligible to apply for the license. See "Who can apply for a license?" in the 3rd column of this page. 

2. Register and attend 4 Your Defense's concealed carry license class. This will get you a Certificate of Competency, a copy of the Ohio attorney general's CCW law pamphlet, and the application.

3. Review the Ohio Attorney General's pamphlet on Ohio Concealed Carry Laws.

4. Call the Sheriffs Office in your county or an adjoining county to schedule a concealed carry license appointment.

5. Bring your filled out application, course completion certificate, passport photo, a photo ID, and the license fee to your appointment. They might take a new picture for your concealed handgun license and you may need to be fingerprinted at the appointment.

It typically takes a few days after your appointment for the sheriff to process your paperwork and to print your concealed handgun license.

Do not bring a firearm when applying for or picking up your concealed handgun license. You don't have a CCW license to conceal carry until after you physically have the concealed handgun license in your hand. The license is designed similar to a driver's license

The Applicant Restrictions can be found in Ohio Law: ORC Section 2923.125

1. You can complete the concealed carry training before you are 21, but you can't apply for the CCW license until you are 21.

2. Resident of Ohio for at least 45 days and a resident of your county for at least 30 days. (You can take the CCW class before you meet this requirement, but can not apply for the license until you meet this requirement.)

3. Not a fugitive from justice.

4. Your criminal record will be disclosed on your application and the sheriff will do a background check. There are many criminal offenses that will bar your from obtaining your license. If you have a criminal conviction in your background, please review ORC Section 2923.125 to see if it disqualifies you. If you are unsure if a conviction in your past will disqualify you, please contact us to find out. Please be specific about the convictions so that we can help you make the determination.

5. Mental Competency: The law states that you must not have been adjudicated as a mental defective, been committed to any mental institution, be under a current adjudication of incompetence, have been found by a court to be mentally ill, subject to hospitalization by court order, and not be an involuntary patient other than one who is a patient only for purpose of observation.

6. Not subject to a protection order by Ohio or another state.
