Renewal Process

Issuing Renewals

A renewal will be issued under the following circumstances:

  • A person who has a license issued by any Georgia Probate Court AND
  • That license will expire within 90 days or has not been expired for more than 30 days. (Note that this is extended to 120 days for any license expiring February 13, 2020 – July 13, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Judicial Emergency Orders.)

Georgia Weapons Carry License Renewal Applications may now be submitted online. Applicants must still visit the Hall County Probate Court to sign their application after submission, but using the online form will make your visit quicker. You do not need to print your application, but will be able to answer your questions online and the Clerk of the Probate Court will print it for you to sign when you arrive.

If, for any reason, the online application does not accept you as a “renewal,” please complete the application as “new” and the Clerk of the Probate Court can make the necessary change to “renewal” when you arrive.

Background Check

Renewals must have a name-based background search even though fingerprints are not required. Hall County Probate Court will perform this check.


Renewals 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.
