Expired permit Q.

7944 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  amtragi
My wife inadvertently let her cwp expire more than a year ago...so she cannot renew it...she has to start over.

Thing is...she originally got her permit over 10 years ago...and her original firearms training certificate was damaged and she tossed it years ago.

After reading the statutes again...I contacted the state to verify that she would be able to renew using the fact that she held a permit...as proof of past training. I was told that no...she could not do so...but that since her old certificate was gone...and so was the company that issued it...she would have to get retrained. Now since I have become an NRA Instructor that isn't the major problem...but it's the fact that the statute states...
2. Completion of any National Rifle Association firearms safety or training course;

3. Completion of any firearms safety or training course or class available to the general public offered by a law enforcement, junior college, college, or private or public institution or organization or firearms training school, utilizing instructors certified by the National Rifle Association, Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission, or the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services;

4. Completion of any law enforcement firearms safety or training course or class offered for security guards, investigators, special deputies, or any division or subdivision of law enforcement or security enforcement;

5. Presents evidence of equivalent experience with a firearm through participation in organized shooting competition or military service;

Anyone else have thoughts on this issue? Any other experience with this type of thing?

If for some reason you fail to renew your license by its expiration date, keep in mind that your Concealed Weapon or Firearm license can be renewed up to six (6) months beyond the expiration date in accordance with section 790.06(11)(a), Florida Statutes. However, there is a late fee of $15.00 for renewing after the expiration date. A concealed weapon license that has been expired for longer than six months cannot be renewed. If you fail to renew within that six-month period after expiration, you will have to apply for a new license.
