Permit Renewal
Currently the process to renew a firearms license is nearly identical to the process for obtaining a new license. The only differences between a new license and a renewal is that fingerprints are no longer required and if you already have a license and you are within 90 days of expiring to no more than 30 after expiring, you can request a temporary renewal license that is valid for 90 days when you apply. That way you can continue carrying while the application is being processed.
