Permit Renewal

Concealed Handgun Permit Renewal

To renew your permit with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, you MUST live in Boulder County (or own or lease business property in Boulder County).

To RENEW your Concealed Handgun Permit, you must apply with the sheriff’s agency in the county where you live. You can apply as early as 120 days (four months) BEFORE the expiration of your permit up to the actual date of expiration. (If you renew AFTER the expiration of your permit (up to five months 30 days after), you will be charged a $15.00 late fee, per State Law.) After six months expired, you must re-apply as a new applicant, and all the appropriate fees and requirements of a new permit will apply.

It is recommended to apply at least six to eight weeks in advance of the expiration date.

NO ADDITIONAL TRAINING IS REQUIRED FOR A RENEWAL.

To submit a Concealed Handgun Permit renewal application during Covid-19, first check to make sure your permit is not more than six months expired (State Law does not allow renewal if your permit is more than six months expired). If it is within the renewal window (less than six months expired), choose which method you prefer to renew by, and follow the instructions below:
