How much is a concealed weapon permit?
The application fee for either permit is $45, made payable to the Office of Attorney General.
How much is the testing?
A test administrator may charge a maximum of $50 for administering the concealed weapon permit testing. This fee is all-inclusive. The instructor may not require an applicant to pay for additional conveniences, such as certificates of completion, additional information or handouts, or photographs, or require the applicant to attend other courses as a pre-requisite or companion to the state’s Concealed Weapon Permit test. If the range assesses a per-person fee, however, the instructor may require an applicant for a Class 1 permit to pay the actual cost of the range fee directly to the range. Range fees are separate from the instructor’s fee for administering the testing.
