John T. Frey,
Clerk of the Court
ALL new Concealed Handgun Applications require “IN PERSON” Competency Training Certification. On-line training is no longer an option if your application is filed after December 31, 2020, pursuant to Virginia Code Section §18.2-308.02(B). To avoid delay in the issuance of your concealed handgun permit, your training certification should state that the training course was “in person”.
Pursuant to Code of Virginia §18.2-308, any person twenty-one years of age or older, or if he or she is a member of the United States Armed Forces, may apply in writing to the Clerk of the Circuit Court where he or she resides or the county or city in which he or she is domiciled, for a five-year permit to carry a concealed handgun.
Concealed Handgun Applications are available at:
All Concealed Handgun Permits granted by the court will be mailed to the applicants. All Concealed Handgun Permit applications are SEALED. §18.2-308 of the Code of Virginia renders all Concealed Handgun Permit applications confidential and not viewable by the general public.
Information is also available at the Virginia State Police web site. The site has the application and lists jurisdictions with which Virginia has reciprocal agreements.
