Save your gas Money and take our Texas License to Carry Online
Getting your hands on a License to Carry or CHL has never been easier. As of 2017, Texas DPS has allowed for online classes to be a valid form of instruction when getting an LTC.
An online class for obtaining an LTC was developed because is way easier and significantly more convenient than a traditional in-person class.
Usually, an LTC class takes about 4 hours and then you go to pass the shooting qualification. In total, you need to put aside your entire day to get all this done.
With LTC classes online, this is no longer the case. The process is much smoother and more convenient for anyone to do.
It is done through video modules which are typically 15-20 minutes. You do not have to watch all the videos in one go. Progress is saved and you can come back later or another day to pick up where you had left off.
This is very helpful as you can spread the work over a longer time frame which will give you more time to do other things throughout the day and it won’t stress you as you won’t need to learn so much information on such a short notice.
In order to take the class, one must reach certain requirements first to be allowed.
The main qualifications are that the applicant must be:
- Be at least 21 years old
- Fully qualify under both state and federal law to possess a handgun (Reference DPS website for more detail)
- Never have committed a felony
- Not be a fugitive of law for either a felony, Class A or B misdemeanor.
- Be a legal resident of Texas for 6 months before the application or meet special eligibility (Reference DPS website for detail)
- Not be chemically dependent, such as on a substance physically.
- Have been deemed with the ability to exercise sound judgment regarding the proper handling of a firearm.
- (Refer to the DPS website for specific details)
These are just the major qualifications that a potential candidate must pass first. Visit the DPS website for more detailed information.
What does the CHL/ LTC training look like?
The training starts first with the online classroom portion. This is usually 4-hours long followed by an exam. If you decide to take it online, then you do not have to do all 4-hours at once and you can break your work up into pieces.
Next is a shooting qualification where you will have to shoot under the supervision of a LTC instructor.
Once you pass the live-fire test, you will then need to get a fingerprint appointment and just submit all the paperwork at this point.
It takes roughly 60 days for everything to be processed so hang tight.
A little bit of patience and you will get your license.
