Permit Refresher Information


The New Mexico DPS law and rules state that NM CCW permit holders must undertake a "refresher" class at the 2-year mid-term date of your license.

There are two ways to accomplish completion of the refresher requirements...the choice is up to the licensee:

Method #1: The licensee may read an online presentation that was developed by the NM DPS. To read how to do the refresher online, click here. After reading the presentation, there is an online test that covers the material read. Click the link at the end of the presentation to take the online test. Follow the directions at the end of the online presentation to obtain credit for taking the refresher class. There is no cost to read the presentation or take the online test.

Method #2: The licensee may undertake a 2-hour shooting session with an NM DPS-certified CCW instructor. Upon completion, the instructor will provide a certificate of completion and After Action Report to the NM DPS which will go into the licensee file.


If you choose Method #2, please email me and we will work together to have you shoot my course of fire. There will be a $51 fee associated with the shooting event.

Your Refresher Certificate will be issued and sent to NM DPS within 30 days of shooting my course of fire. You will also get a copy via email PDF.


If a licensee does NOT accomplish completion of refresher training via Method #1 or #2 above, NM DPS may SUSPEND your license and require an additional $5 fee to reinstate it upon proof of refresher compliance.
