Most students who complete our class often ask how do they apply for their Texas license to carry. It’s a simple process and below we will cover everything you need to know. While we recommend completing the course before you apply, you can apply before you take the course.
After completion of the Online Class AND 50 Round Shooting Qualification, you’re ready to apply. Be sure to visit our Instructor Locator tool to find a qualified shooting instructor near you.
Texas LTC Application Process
What you will need:

Start the online application process HERE. You will select “Apply” under New Users. Follow the steps of the application process filing out all the info they ask for. When entering the 5 year residential and employment history it does not allow for gaps, just put what you have to so there are no gaps in the 5 years.
Schedule your fingerprint appointment. Follow the instruction DPS gives you when you apply for your LTC. If you didn’t get the instructions just use service code: 119Q91 and schedule your appointment online HERE. If you are having problems scheduling them online you can call them at 1-888-467-2080.
