Application Process


Georgia Weapons Carry License Applications must be submitted online. Applicants will complete the application and answer all questions online before coming to the court to sign the application. Completed applications remain in the queue for 30 days. You must come to the court within the 30 days to complete the process. You do not need to print your application so you may do this step from any device that is connected to the internet. The clerk of the Probate Court will print your application and witness your signature.


Applications must be done in person at the Probate Court in the county where you reside. Online forms for applications do not complete the process. Concealed Carry Services sells you information for $17.00, but does not have any connection with any Probate Court in Georgia and does not process Weapons Carry Licenses.

Application & Payment

At the Probate Court, you will complete the application and consent forms for fingerprinting and background checks. Apply at the Hall County Probate Court during regular business hours Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Please also:

  • Present valid government issued photo ID with your street address on it
  • Pay the application fee (cash, local check, or credit card with a service fee)
    • $78.25 - Original license on or after August 1, 2020
    • $30.00 - License renewal

Fingerprints & Background Check

After you complete the paperwork, you will step across the hall to have your fingerprints scanned by a Probate Court employee. He or she will then obtain a background check for the judge to review.

Fingerprinting is done between the hours of 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Obtaining the Approved License

Depending on what appears in your background check, your license may be mailed to you as soon as 3 weeks from the date you have your fingerprints done. It may take longer if you have a criminal record that needs to be reviewed.

Your license is good for a period of 5 years, after which you must reapply if you wish to have a valid license.

If you lose your license or it is destroyed, you must report to the Probate Court immediately to be eligible for a Replacement License.
