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.
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

- Proper storage practices for handguns with an emphasis on storage practices that eliminate the possibility of accidental injury to a child
