Frequently Asked Questions

When going through the process of getting a LTC, you may have a few questions. Here are some of our most frequently asked questions.

Can I get my LTC if I'm 18?

Yes. Texas just recently announced on the DPS website that you can now get your license to carry starting at 18 years old

Can I take my LTC class online in Texas?

Yes, you can complete the classroom portion of your Concealed Carry Class online with Texas Carry Course and we will give you your DPS issued LTC-101 form which is required to take the live-fire exam at a location convenient for you. Unless you are exempt from the shooting portion. See the next question to determine if you are exempt.

We can provide you with a list of local instructors once you complete the class. Simply reply to your completion email or receipt email with the name of your city and we can send you back the corresponding list. 

Am I exempt from the Shooting Exam?

Yes: If you are active duty or retired (honerably discharged) in the last 10 years and have a copy of your range qualifcation card. 

If yes, then you simply need to complete the online LTC class with us. Then you will just complete the DPS application on their website like anyone else. They will have you upload your LTC-101 we give you and your range qualification card at the time of application. 

No: If you are retired (honerably discharged) more than 10 years ago. 

How long does it take to complete the Texas LTC class?

Online Class Portion

The online class is 4 hours long as required by the state of Texas. We break it into 15 minute easy to digest videos so you can come and go as you need. We give you up to a year to finish the class. So finish in as little as 4 hours, or take more time to go at a pace that fits your schedule. 

Shooting Proficiency Exam Portion

This portion takes 1 hour in person with a local instructor. We provide our students with a courtesy list of local instructors. Simply reply to your receipt email or completion email and let us know what city you are in. 

Getting Your License

Once you apply for your license on the DPS website and submit the documents you got from our class, the state of Texas has up to 60 days to issue you your license by mail. We've heard from students that the current wait time is only a couple of weeks right now. 

Is a CHL the same as an LTC?

Yes. The proper name in Texas is a "License to Carry." In Texas you can carry openly or concealed, so they renamed the license in 2015 to just be a License to Carry or LTC for short.

You may hear people refer to it as a Concealed Carry License (CCL), Concealed Handgun License (CHL) or Concealed Carry Weapons License (CCW). These are just alternative names that people call it. In Texas there is only one official name when applying and taking your classes and that is a License to Carry or LTC for short.
