    In NM you are required to declare a concealed weapon ASAP, and if you have a permit and no weapon with you better 'fess up anyway. The permit WILL show up on an in-state DL check, I'm told. I can't say about out of stater's. Nevertheless, out of staters are required to declare, and I think it is a misdemeanor if you don't and are found out.

    So far as I know, ONLY if you are a Michigan Resident, with a Michigan CPL, will the info pop up when the officer runs your DL. Of course, in Michigan, when stopped by a LEO, you should tell them right away if you have a pistol on you.

    IF you don't have a pistol, you're not required to disclose, but it will stop a lot of grief if you say something to the effect of "I have a concealed pistol license, but I'm not currently carrying a pistol." Since it will show up when they run your DL, and you don't want a pissed off officer badgering you because you didn't disclose.

    Wow! Very BIG BROTHER. I think I saw this a few years ago in a movie, patrol car scanning every car that went by. Got a pic?

    Post Do they already know?

    In Georgia, I believe it is automatically displayed on the "Coppers" monitor, or that they are automatically notified... I have a tendancy to let the "Hemi Quad" run how it wants; I have been asked on a few occasions if I had a handgun on my person.
    On every one of the occasions I have had & said so, and the patrolman just said OK thanks; then ran the rest of my info., never once looked back or acted as if it were a problem or concern in any way..!
    I believe; at least in my area, the Cops really prefer us "Legals..."; but are greatly concerned about the vast majority instead..! (Its said that in my area (Metro Savannah, GA.); "1 in 7 people are carrying a handgun (includes kids...)" & only 2 in every group of 7 that are carrying, are legal & permitted..! A local violent crimes Copper I know says the kids (early teenagers & earlier...) are the ones that the Cops "Dread" dealing with because they are often armed, & "Scarey" as hell..! Who wants to have to deal w/ the great possibility that an 11 year old is gonna try to Shoot you..?!, or that you'll have to shoot them..?! (Ick..!)
    Anyway, Just my.02 cent worth...

    paramedic70002...

    Unfortunately, I'm still in the Dark Ages when it comes to digital photography, so I can't upload a picture. I'm searching for a picture link; meanwhile, here is a link to a Tennessean article which mentions the barcode:

    paramedic70002 (2)...

    Here is a link with a picture of the plate. The barcode is in the bottom center of the plate:

    +1 to Old Chief's comment...I had forgotten to mention that. BTW, Tennessee DL numbers (hence CCW too, I would suppose) are permanent. I was born and raised here and kept my Tennessee DL while on active duty, but then moved to and got licenses in Georgia and Virginia. When I came back to Tennessee, I was assigned my old number I got when I was sixteen. The only difference now is that it has a leading zero, since so many have now been issued.

    Permits are issued by the sheriff of each county in Alabama and as far as I can tell the records remain in the county. So if you are stopped by anyone other than the sheriff's department in your home county they will not be able to get the information about your concealed carry permit, unless they check with the sheriff's department in your county.

    Can you provide a reference for either of those statements?

    In MO you are not required by law to tell the officer your ccw status but it appears as an endorsment on your DL so he will know when he looks at your license or runs your plates. Fortuneately in Mo all resident and non resident out of state permits are valid. So if you don't want your permit status so easily known you can get an out of state non res permit and be perfectly leagal. I carry on a PA permit myself.

    Whether or not he actually asks you is irregarless because it depends on the individual officer who stops you. However, I can attest that when your driver's license is run that it will return with "CONCEALED WEAPONS PERMIT" near the bottom. If they run it over the air, my agency requires me to tell them this. If they run it from a computer in their car, they will see it very clearly.

    Cheers.
