LOOKING FOR AN ONLINE COURSE?
If you have decided due to health concerns or schedule conflicts, an online option is best for you--BE CAREFUL! While appearing legitimate at first glance, many websites are issuing licenses to Virgin and Utah—NOT Texas. Those sites typically say their license is "valid in Texas" or "Get a license that allows you to carry in Texas." These sites generally are NOT authorized as a primary license by the State of Texas. If you are looking for a legitimate option, please consider using the valid partners we have vetted and listed in the "Our Partners" section or at this link: https://texasgunschool.com/our-partners
ALREADY FINISHED YOUR ONLINE COURSE?
If you have already completed your Texas License to Carry (LTC) online course and need to complete the shooting requirement, please give us a call to schedule your appointment today.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE SHOOTING PORTION OF YOUR EXAMINATION:
At the conclusion of the range proficiency, the instructor will complete all the necessary LTC-101 form sections and discuss your next steps to gaining your LTC.
WHAT TO DO NEXT?
1. Collect any paperwork needed to apply for your license.
2. Go to the Texas DPS site and complete the online application. The application can be found by clicking on the following link: https://txapps.texas.gov/txapp/txdps/ltc/
3. For new applicants, select "NEW USER" from the two choices at the bottom of the application.
4. After completing the application and answering the questions on the pages that follow, you will pay the appropriate Texas fee. Make certain to print and keep/print the receipt page with the large barcode on the top.
SENDING YOUR REQUIRED FORMS TO THE STATE OF TEXAS:
An applicant may scan/attach the LTC-101 form and other required documents during the online application process, OR fax the required forms to 512-424-7284.
The forms you must provide the State are:
WHAT ABOUT FINGERPRINTS?
An email will follow shortly after your application is completed with a link to make an appointment for fingerprinting. Click on the link provided in the email and make your appointment with IdentoGO. If you have any difficulty making your fingerprinting appointment, you can call the IdentoGO customer service number for help. Their number is 888-467-2080 (fingerprinting helpline).
PHOTOGRAPH FOR YOUR LICENSE?
An applicant no longer sends passport photographs to the State with an application. Texas uses the photograph on the most recent Driver License or Texas ID for the new License To Carry. Should a photograph be required, the State office will contact the applicant with instructions.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
The average processing time for LTC applications without complication is three to four weeks after all steps have been completed including fingerprinting.
