In order to keep your permit current, it will be necessary for you to apply for a new permit every 5 years. You may apply for a renewal permit up to within 30 days after expiration for a reduced fee. If your license is expired by more than 30 days, you will have to apply for a new permit and will not receive the reduced fee. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this deadline has been extended to 120 days, until further notice.
Click here to submit the preliminary application online. When filling out the preliminary gun permit application online, if you are a renewal and are getting an error message, please select new license application. If you are eligible for a renewal permit, it will be converted to a renewal application and the renewal fee will be applied.
If you have a permit issued in another county in Georgia, please call our office for more information.
