How to Submit your LTC Application
How to apply for the Texas License to Carry / Concealed Handgun License and how to submit the paperwork is the most common question asked. The Texas DPS website is not the most intuitive and can be frustrating to navigate. This also makes it difficult to explain the process without being able to see the website. The same goes for the LTC/CHL renewal process. The below steps detail what is needed and how to complete it all!
Just remember that once the online LTC class is completed, a proficiency test still has to be conducted with an LTC instructor. Contact the store or range that you purchased the registration code from to setup the proficiency demonstration.
Note: The online application can be started before or after you have completed the online LTC/CHL class and proficiency demonstration.
What you will need:
- DL/ID Number
- Credit Card/Debit Card
- Previous addresses for 5 years prior to application.
- Previous job history for 5 years prior to application, including the business addresses.
- All previous criminal history. This includes all arrests regardless of the outcome. Dates of charges, county and disposition date will be needed.
- LTC-101 Certificate of completion. This is submitted after the application is completed. The LTC-101 is provided after completing the online LTC class. The certificate is not complete however until the proficiency test has been done with an LTC instructor.
