Individuals who wish to obtain a Florida Concealed Weapon or Firearm License may submit their application electronically at any Indian River County Tax Collector’s Office:










The Concealed Weapon License Application service provided at the Tax Collector's Office is designed to allow an applicant to complete the entire application process quickly and conveniently. The Concealed Weapons License Application service is intended to streamline the application screening and review process, thereby reducing the time it takes the Department of Agriculture to issue the license once the application arrives electronically in Tallahassee. Because applications submitted at our office will be pre-screened for completion prior to their being forwarded to Tallahassee, there is less likelihood that the application will include errors or omissions that will result in processing delays.

Effective February 12, 2010, the Division of Licensing no longer prints the licensee's residence address on teh Florida concealed weapon license. The law does not require you to obtain a revised license after a change of address so you may continue to carry your current license until it expires. If, however, you would like a revised license, please send a written request with a check or money order in the amount of $15 made payable to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. You do not need to send a passport-type color photograph until it is time to renew your license.


License Renewal


Your Florida Concealed Weapon License is valid for a period of seven years. 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. 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 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. (License renewals are processed at the Indian River County Tax Collector’s Office)
