Renewal of Permit to Carry

Renewal Information


A permit to carry issued under Minnesota Statue 624.714 expires five years after the date of issue. It may be renewed in the same manner and under the same criteria which the original permit was obtained, which includes proof of firearms training (See below). A permit holder may apply for a new permit 90 days prior to the expiration date on the permit. The fee for a permit renewal from the Washington County Sheriff's Office will be $55.

Applicants must provide proof of firearms training by a certified instructor that includes fundamentals of pistol use, actual shooting qualification exercise, and instruction in the fundamental legal aspects of pistol possession, carry, and use including self-defense and the restrictions on use of deadly force. Please note that training must have been completed no more than one year prior to your application date.

After the expiration date, but within 30 days after the expiration, the permit can still be renewed by paying an additional late fee of $10 for a total renewal fee of $65. During this time the old permit is not valid and you will not be able to carry until after you receive your renewal permit.

31 days after expiration the old permit can no longer be renewed. An application will have to be submitted for a new gun permit. The gun permit fee will then be $75.
