NM CCW Renewal Class Requirements & Information

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR RENEWALS

 

FOR RENEWAL APPLICATIONS:

  • Complete and send in the 2-Page NM DPS Application, check off the "Renewal Application" box

  • Include the $75.00 Fee (check or money order)

  • Include a photocopy of your New Mexico Driver’s License or Identification Card

  • Include a printout of the Certificate of Completion of Firearms Training I will send you

  • NOTE: AS OF JUNE 2015, FINGERPRINTS ARE NO LONGER REQUIRED FOR RENEWAL APPLICATIONS.

 

  • NOTE (February 8, 2017): Under normal circumstances, renewal applicants do not have to have fingerprints taken again. However, if a renewal applicant has never had the electronic fingerprint process completed, NM DPS requires those renewal applicants to obtain the electronic fingerprints as if they were applying for a new NM CCW license.

 

  • If that is the case for you, please follow the directions listed on the "Fingerprint Info" link.

 

  • Also, if this pertains to you, be sure to deduct the $44 fingerprint fee from the $75 renewal fee above, and only send in $31 for your renewal fee to NM DPS. If you pay $44 for the fingerprint fee, and still send in $75, you will overpay and you will not receive a refund from NM DPS.
     

  • Finally, if this pertains to you, include a copy of your Cogent email receipt showing that you already paid $44 for the fingerprint fee.

 

If mailing your renewal application package, mail to:

 

NM Department of Public Safety

SID/Concealed Carry Unit

6301 Indian School Rd. NE Suite 310

Albuquerque, NM 87110


You may also choose to hand-deliver your package at the same address...check their business hours first.

OTHER INFORMATION

The New Mexico DPS rules state that NM CCW permit holders must complete a "renewal" class within 60 days before the expiration date of your license, and up to 60 days after the expiration date.

 

Duration of the renewal class is 4 hours and you must also shoot the requalification course of fire with the calibers and categories of firearms that are listed on your license. 

 

NOTE: DPS does not calculate your exact date into the 60 days ahead and after...only the months are important.

 

For example, if your license expires on March 15th, you can take the renewal class anytime during January, February, and March UP TO THE EXPIRATION DATE -- in this example, March 15th.

 

If you go beyond the expiration date to take the renewal class, you will NOT be able to legally carry a concealed firearm and your CCW license is invalid.

 

Please, DO NOT WAIT MORE THAN 60 days beyond your permit expiration date to take the class. If you do, NM DPS rules state that you will NOT be able to take a renewal class...you will have to take the entire 15-hour NM CCW course all over again.

 

Please check with me to determine if any of my renewal classes will be within 60 days prior to your expiration date.

 

If they are, I will send you a link to sign up for the class and include more information.

 

Also, since I conduct both Refresher and Renewal classes the same day, please click here to let me know which one you are signing up for.
