IS YOUR PERMIT ABOUT TO EXPIRE OR HAS ALREADY EXPIRED? WE CAN HELP!
Your Arizona CCW Permit is good for 5 years, and may be renewed every 5 years after that. The Arizona Department of Public Safety allows you to start the renewal process 90 days before the expiration date. You are not required to complete another firearms training course as long as you complete the renewal process within the given time frame. Note, there is a 60 day grace period after the expiration date. The only caveat is that AZDPS is taking longer than usual to process new and renewal applications at this time (typically it’s approximately 75 business days). If you’ve started the renewal process or just realized that your permit is about to expire, there’s a good chance your permit will be expired by the time they are able to process your renewal application. There is no temporary card or special exceptions. Your permit is expired until AZDPS issues you a new card.
If you are a Resident or Non-Resident in this situation, don’t worry we can help. We can assist you with completing the AZ CCW Permit Renewal process and hand deliver your renewal packet (bypassing The United States Postal Service) directly to AZDPS minimizing any delays in receiving your new permit and gaps walking around with an expired AZ CCW Permit.
