THE CONCEALED PISTOL LICENSE APPLICATION HAS CHANGED – The only application that will be accepted is the one with a revision date of 11/2018
PLEASE PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO YOUR APPLICATION WHEN APPLYING FOR YOUR LICENSE OR APPLYING FOR A RENEWAL
There are also two new ways to submit your renewal application for a concealed pistol license (CPL). Those options are:
*Renew online (If you do not have a PIN# in your renewal letter, you must request one by sending an email to Amy Anderson at email@example.com) The renewal letter will be reprinted and sent to you again with a PIN#.
*Renew by mail
An application to renew a CPL may be submitted to the county clerk, through the CPL renewal website at michigan.gov/cplrenewal, or by first-class mail to the MSP, not more than six months before, nor one year after, the expiration of the current CPL. The mailing address is:
Michigan State Police
Attn: Concealed Pistol License Unit
P.O. Box 30634
Lansing, MI 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.
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
9:00 A.M. to 11:30 A.M. and
1:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M.
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.
