    I do the Utah permit classes for $75 as well. $200 seems a tad on the high side.

    papawman,
    You might want to double check your information on this.
    I have always been a Virginia resident and therefore never have had, nor can obtain a NC permit. I am a certified NC permit instructor and have been since 2004.

    Given the laws in both states as they are written today, FL's permit is more expensive than Utah's, especially on renewals.

    i am only using the information i was given at the time i took the instructor course - maybe i was misinformed - but there would be no reason for someone from out-of-state to take the course if they will not be able to receieive the permit - if you lived close enough to NC i could understand teaching the course.

    Understood. Things change too. Maybe they have a different policy in effect now.

    When I complete the class I leave with the license. Because I have a Maine permit, I only need to attend the class for 4 hours to meet the requirements.

    The Class is $200.

    I have been told that it will allow me to carry in 30 states.

    Good deal or pass? Reasons?

    Arizona Arkansas Delaware Idaho Indiana
    Kentucky Michigan Minnesota Missouri Montana
    Nevada New Mexico Oklahoma Tennessee Vermont
    Wyoming

    Now that I have looked at the list, I guess I do not see a need to get the permit. I never travel to any of the states except Arizona once every 5 years.

    Any other permits that give you more states?
    You leave with the license? That doesn't sound right. You're paying $200 for the class, the instructor to sign off on application, fingerprints, and ID photo. Is the instructor bringing somebody in to take the fingerprints? Usually, a law enforcement agency has to be the one who takes the fingerprints. The application has to be notarized too. Just because you have a Maine permit and the instructor is certified to teach the Utah CCW, he can't issue the permit himself.

    It sounds to me like the $200 will give you everything you need to send your application off to the Utah BCI. They have up to 60 days to notify you. In my case, it was 60 days after the check for the application fee ($65.25) was posted to my account.

    I think the $200 is high as well. Last month, I attended a session where we did the UT and FLA requirements. Total was $100.

    Sent off my UT stuff, CC was charged this week. Hope to add that permit in the next couple months.

    Not sure I will go ahead with the FLA permit process. It doesn't add states for me.

    $200 not cheap - true - but how often can we get UT instructors in Maine ?

    They provide a notary , pictures , and figerprinting as part of the class.

    Not cheap, but not a bad deal. I expect to take the class myself.

    Utah BCI only lists 2 certified instructors in Maine.

    I took my Nevada nonresident CCW class. It was $100, plus an additional $15 to sign off on the Utah permit. There was no other services, though.
