What are The Requirements to Get Your License to Carry (LTC) in Texas

In order to get your license to carry (LTC) in Texas, you must meet several requirements.  First, you must be at least 21 years of age and a legal resident of the state. Second, you must have a clean criminal record free from felonies or domestic violence related misdemeanors. Third, you must complete an approved firearm course and demonstrate competency with a handgun. Lastly, you will need to pass an FBI background check and submit your application with all necessary paperwork to the local county tax office where it will be processed by the Department of Public Safety. It is important that all information submitted during this process is accurate and up-to-date as any inaccurate information can result in your license being denied. After successfully completing all requirements and submitting your application, you will then be issued a license to carry (LTC). 


Once you have obtained your license to carry (LTC), it is valid for up to four years. During this time, you may use your license to purchase and possess firearms within the state of Texas. In addition, you must ensure that your license remains in good standing by renewing it before its expiration date. Failure to do so can result in suspension or revocation of the license. To renew a license, applicants must take another approved firearm course and pass a shooting proficiency exam. It is important to note that some Texas counties have additional requirements that licensees are expected to meet in order to obtain or renew an LTC license. 


Be sure to familiarize yourself with the laws governing firearm license holders and always exercise caution when handling any type of firearm. It is important that license holders understand their rights and responsibilities as outlined by the Department of Public Safety in order to maintain their license status.
