Before you can apply for a Nevada Carry Permit you must complete and 8 hour class with an approved instructor. The class must include a demonstration of firearm competency and a written test. At the end of the class you will receive all the necessary paperwork to take to the Sheriff and apply for the permit. The Sheriff’s office will take your photo and your fingerprints when you take in your application.
If you are a Nevada resident you must apply to the Sheriff’s office in the county where you reside. If you are a non-resident, you must apply in the same county where you took your class.
The Sheriff has up to 120 days to approve or deny your application both for a new permit and for a renewal. It usually doesn’t take the full 120 days. Permits are valid for 5 years from date of issue.
The fees for the new permit are $100.25 which includes your fingerprints, photo and processing.
To renew your permit before it expires (we suggest 2 to 3 months prior to expiration) you must take a 4 hour renewal class with firearm competency before you can submit your renewal application. The renewal fee for the permit is $65.25.
If your permit has been expired for less than 120 days the same process applies but you will also have a $15.00 late fee.
If your permit has been expired for more than 120 days you have to do the whole process for a new permit.
If your permit is expired, no matter how long it has been, you CANNOT carry concealed until you have your new permit.
