Freedomofchoice eldorado: I'm a Fla resident with a ccl and I was wondering if you can tell me:
First: Do they send you the renewal notice and paper work? YES about 150 days before expiration.
Second: You said it took 90 days, but, how many days remained before the old license ran out?
The expiration date appears on the front of your license. Approximately 150 days prior to the expiration date of your license, the Division will send you the renewal form with complete instructions on how to renew your license. To help assure the Division of Licensing has sufficient time to process your renewal application prior to the expiration date of your current license, complete and return your application immediately.
If for some reason you fail to renew your license by its expiration date, keep in mind that your Concealed Weapon or Firearm license can be renewed up to six (6) months beyond the expiration date in accordance with section 790.06(11)(a), Florida Statutes. However, there is a late fee of $15.00 for renewing after the expiration date. A concealed weapon license that has been expired for longer than six months cannot be renewed. If you fail to renew within that six-month period after expiration, you will have to apply for a new license. You cannot carry a concealed weapon or firearm after your license has expired.
Third: Do you need to get re-fingerprinted? NO
I opted to send my electronic prints to be "in the system"
I have plans to get a private investigators license in the new year and having my scanned prints in the system will help.
