Concealed Pistol Licenses  The process is easier than you think.


Learning the laws regulating the use of firearms is a must for responsible ownership. Local regulations differ and laws vary from state to state. Citizens must check with the jurisdiction where the firearm is to be used.

In Washington State, law enforcement agencies are required to follow local, state and federal guidelines when performing the necessary background checks for issuing Concealed Pistol Licenses (CPLs). Due to the detailed nature involved in conducting these background checks, processing times can take up to 30 days (up to 60 days for applicants residing out of state). You will be notified when all required background checks have been completed.

If you reside within Snohomish County, or are a resident of another state, you may apply for a CPL at the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. If you are a city resident, you may apply to the local law enforcement agency (Police Department) in the jurisdiction of where you reside.


  • For an ORIGINAL CPL, you will be asked to schedule a fingerprint appointment.
  • If you are applying for a CPL RENEWAL, you may not apply until 90 days prior to the expiration date shown on your current CPL.
  • LATE RENEWAL applications will be accepted up to 90 days after the expiration date shown on the current CPL.
  • If your license is lost, stolen or destroyed, you may apply for a REPLACEMENT CPL regardless of where your CPL was originally issued.
