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.

Georgia Weapons Carry License Renewal Applications must be submitted online. Applicants will complete the application and answer all questions online before coming to 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.

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.
