UTAH’S NEW LAW FACTS
What this law does and does not do?
Despite what has been reported in the media, all this new law DOES is simply allow a person who was forced to open carry to now cover the firearm and conceal it. This results in less people seeing the firearm and causes fewer calls to 911 and possible conflict.
What this new law DOES NOT DO is eliminate other laws that a permit holder is exempt from.
The primary benefits of a permit include:
• Carry in Public K-12 School
• Carry on Public Higher Education Campus
• Firearm Purchase Background Check Exemption
• Reciprocity with 36 other states
• Carry loaded long gun on motorized vehicle
• Carry firearm while bow hunting (personal protection)
• Better law enforcement interaction
• With a permit, carrier is solely responsibility for actions. Without a permit, employer or other property owner may be responsible as well.
Please do not be fooled by the media reports that this law replaces the permit. Know the laws so you don’t make a mistake.
Education, De-escalation and Resolve conflict with words, not violence.
What is the process to obtain a permit…
- Attend a Utah Concealed Firearm Course
- Submit an application that includes:
- Passport Photo
- Identification (other required paperwork)
The Course for the over 21 permit and provisional (under 21) permit are the same. Same course, same process, same everything.
We do all the above for you at once.
How do I do that…
- Register (on this website) and pay to reserve your seat in the course.
- Complete the REQUIRED online application & fingerprint form. Link in confirmation email.
- Don’t forget your Utah Driver’s License or ID (paper version acceptable) and any other applicable documents. Residency will be determined by your state-issued identification.
- Upon arrival, we will have your paperwork completed for you and all you need to do is sign. Furthermore, we will then take your photo, fingerprints and prepare your paperwork for delivery to BCI.
- Enjoy a comfortable learning environment.
- Utah courses do not require live fire exercises so no firearm needed for the course. We focus on the laws so you know what to do before you pull the trigger.
Everything done at one time. Utah CCW Carry takes the worry and work out of obtaining your Utah Concealed Firearm Permit.
Utah’s CFP permit cannot lawfully be obtained through an online course. It must be taught in person. If you are offered such a course, it will not meet the requirements to obtain a Utah Concealed Firearm Permit!
How Much does it Cost…
The cost of $60.00 is for the required education course including photos, prints and hand delivery of the application. The State of Utah also charges $53.25 for residents and $63.25 for non-residents to process your application and perform the background check. This is the total out of pocket costs.
The payment to the state of Utah via credit/debit card, check, money order or cashiers check is submitted with your application and is processed separately from the fee for this course. It may take several weeks for BCI to process this payment.
Only a few things you need:
- Your ID/DL from the state you live in (Paper temp licenses are legal).
Passports do not meet that requirement. Other states permits have no bearing on this permit.
- If born outside the US, a US passport or immigration documents should be brought to class to be copied for your application.
- A smile for the camera! If you need help with this, we can do tricks for you.
- Your fingers for the fingerprint card. If you need help with this, please go to your nearest emergency room.
- A check or credit/debit card to pay the state for the permit application and process.
That’s all you will need.
Out of State Residents…
Non-Utah applicants must have a permit from their home state if that home state has reciprocity with Utah. Residency is established by your state-issued identification. If your state does not recognize the Utah permit, this does not apply.
