    Virginia permit renewal question

    My 5 year carry permit for Virginia will expire in about 4 months. I know I need to complete the form and visit the courthouse like last time. My question is, do I need to show "proficiency with a handgun" again with some kind of class certificate, or is the fact that I already have a permit enough? The websites I've seen don't seem to address this issue for renewals and I want to be sure I show up with all of the right forms the first time. Does anyone know the details around permit renewals in VA?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    bronco, unfortunately it can vary by county. What we recommend to our students is to bring a copy of your class certificate just in case. None of the counties I had experience with required it for renewal and the opinion is it isn't required by law, but since it is vague the sheriff could ask for it and or the judge could require it. You should be able to use your original certificate. Have it along just in case to save time and effort.

    Loudoun and Clarke Counties didn't require it for renewal. Fairfax on the other hand might. I don't have personal knowledge of how they handle renewals, but I'll be someone here might. Most counties recommend you apply for renewal about 90 days prior, but I know Loudoun gets them out in a few weeks most of the time. Better safe than sorry though.

    Thanks for the reply Scott. I live in Loudoun so I might be in luck. I did finally find something on the Loudoun.gov sheriff site that says to bring your old permit. Hopefully Loudoun has made it easy.

    Fairfax doesn't require proof of proficiency for a renewal just the form, cash, and a copy of your old permit. You won't be allowed to pick up your renewal until the day your permit expires. They put the date in the approval letter.
