Your Arizona CCW Permit is good for 5 years, and may be renewed every 5 years after that. The Arizona Department of Public Safety allows you to start the renewal process 90 days before the expiration date. You are not required to complete another firearms training course as long as you complete the renewal process within the given time frame. Note, there is a 60 day grace period after the expiration date. You are welcome to contact the state to complete the renewal yourself.

It is taking AZDPS approximately 75 business days or longer to process mailed applications at this time. If you've started the renewal process or just realized that your permit is about to expire, there's a good chance your permit will be expired by the time they are able to process your renewal application.There is no temporary card or special exceptions. Your permit is expired until AZDPS issues you a new card.

If you are a Resident or Non-Resident in this situation, don't worry we can help. We can assist you with completing the AZ CCW Permit Renewal process and hand deliver your renewal packet (bypassing The United States Postal Service or other mailer carriers) directly to AZDPS minimizing any delays in receiving your new permit and gaps walking around with an expired AZ CCW Permit.

  • We complete your Renewal Application to ensure it's completed correctly and on the most current form (there are outdated applications on the internet, incorrect applications will be returned by AZDPS).
  • We purchase a USPS Money Order for $43, complete it on your behalf and make you a copy for your records for tracking purposes.
  • We assemble and hand deliver your complete Renewal Application to a clerk at AZDPS's permit unit for processing (new permit is typically issued within 30-45 days, all dependent on clearing the FBI background check). If mailed by you, it may take approximately at least 75 business days or longer. Hand delivery service by us ensures AZDPS has received your renewal versus mailing the packet yourself (as it could get lost only delaying the process).

  • You have access to ask any questions you might have with one of our NRA Certified Instructors.
  • We are available to help 7 days a week, if you need further assistance.
