There are three ways to submit your renewal application for a concealed pistol license (CPL). Those are:
*Renew online michigan.gov/cplrenewal (If you do not have a PIN# in your renewal letter, you must request one by sending an email to Melanie Coon at email@example.com) The renewal letter will be reprinted and sent to you again via regular mail with a PIN#.
*Renew by mail (Please submit a completed CPL application, along with a check or money order payable to the Michigan State Police, to the MSP CPL Unit, PO Box 30634, Lansing, MI 48909.)
*Renew in Person
You can apply up to six months prior to expiration. If you apply more than one year AFTER expiration you will need to take the CPL training course again. If you would rather submit your application directly to the Michigan State Police you may send the application and payment to: Michigan State Police, to the MSP CPL Unit, P.O. Box 30634, Lansing, Michigan 48909.
CONCEALED PISTOL LICENSE (new and renewal) – $115
We accept cash, check/money order and credit/debit cards for payment.
Please note: You no longer need to bring photos with you to apply for a CPL. The software now uses your driver’s license photo for your permit.
If you do not have a digital photograph on file with the Michigan Secretary of State, however, you will need to bring a passport quality photograph with you at the time of application.
If you would like to check your Criminal History prior to applying, you can go to the Michigan State Police website and use ICHAT (Michigan State Police Internet Criminal History Access Tool) There are fees associated with this Tool. For instructions on how to use that tool click the link below.

Two things to remember about getting your fingerprints done:
- It is not safe to bring children with you to have your fingerprints done. They are not allowed in the fingerprinting area and there is no one to watch them in the Sheriff’s Office.
- The Jail can be a very busy place and there are times when circumstances do not allow for fingerprinting to be done. If you are traveling any distance to come get your prints done you may want to call prior to leaving to be sure you can have them done that day. The phone number is (231) 873-2121.
