Texas License to Carry – LTC (Formally Concealed Handgun License – CHL)

Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Regulatory Services Division licenses individuals to carry concealed handguns within the state of Texas, evaluates the eligibility of applicants through criminal history background checks, and monitors those currently licensed to ensure their continued eligibility. DPS also trains and certifies instructors who teach the required course to applicants.

For original (first time) applicants the course is required to be a minimum of 10 hours. Renewal applicants are required to attend a 4 hour course. Each course is divided into a classroom section and a shooting proficiency evaluation.

Basic Firearms Safety

Firearms safety courses are offered for both children and adults. Safety courses tailored specifically for hunter$$, children, and women have become particularly popular. Other programs such as the NRA’s “Eddie Eagle” program, which was developed for school-age children, reinforces “Stop! Don’t touch! Leave the area! Tell an adult!” if the child ever sees a firearm lying around. The “Eddie Eagle” program reduces the likelihood of firearms accidents in the home, and the program is used in many elementary schools nationwide.
