A renewal notice will be mailed to the licensee’s address at least 90 days before expiration. Licensees who have failed to notify the Attorney General of an address change will likely not receive a renewal notice. The Attorney General will not attempt to locate licensees whose mail is returned as undeliverable.
Renewal applications are not available online or on the Attorney General’s website. Please contact the Concealed Carry Licensing Unit at (785) 291-3765 if you need a renewal application.
The renewal process will be as follows:
- Licensees will receive a renewal notice, instructions and an application form by mail 90 days prior to expiration.
- The application form must be filled out, notarized and mailed back by certified mail to the Attorney General. Licensees may opt to hand deliver their notarized renewal applications to the Attorney General’s Office (Topeka) in lieu of certified mail.
- The completed renewal application must include a current 2x2 inch color photo of the licensee, and a copy of the licensee’s driver's license or ID. Effective July 1st, 2023, the fee to renew a license is reduced to $0.
- License renewals do not require training and licensees will not have to submit their applications through the County Sheriff or provide another set of fingerprints.
- Licensees will be subjected to an electronic criminal history background check prior to renewal.
- When approved, licensees will be mailed a notice of approval to renew their license. The notice of approval must be taken to a Kansas Driver’s License Station for issuance. Licenses will be renewed for 4 years from the date of expiration.
- RENEW PROMPTLY! Failure to submit a renewal application prior to expiration will result in a lapse in licensure. Effective July 1st, 2023, there is no fee for late renewal.
- Licenses are considered permanently expired 6 months after the expiration date. Holders of a permanently expired license will have to submit a new application pursuant to K.S.A. 75-7c05.
