Welcome to the Texas License To Carry Training.  We’ll work with you to educate you on Laws and requirements for carrying a handgun in Texas.

In order to minimize your wait time, we recommend you start by registering with Texas DPS and scheduling your fingerprints.  The Texas DPS site is https://txapps.texas.gov/txapp/txdps/chl/.  For scheduling fingerprints, please register at identgo at a location near you: https://uenroll.identogo.com/#/.  You should also familiarize yourself with the Texas LTC related laws http://dps.texas.gov/InternetForms/Forms/CHL-16.pdf.  Don’t worry about memorizing the booklet, it can be a little overwhelming.  We’ll go through the requirements in class in plain english.

No handguns permitted in the classroom during the classroom training.

Classroom Training:

The overall objective of this course is to educate students on the responsibilities and laws applicable to handgun license holders.  The class is taught in 4 modules requiring a minimum of 4 lecture hours.  The modules are as follows:

  • Laws that relate to weapons and to the use of deadly force
  • Handgun use and safety, including use of restraint holsters and methods to ensure the secure carrying of openly carried handguns
  • Non‐violent dispute resolution
  • Proper storage practices for handguns with an emphasis on storage practices that eliminate the possibility of accidental injury to a child

After the lecture is completed, we will review the material followed by a 25 question test.  You must obtain a score of 70% or greater to pass the classroom portion of the training.
