Concealed Pistol License

Original CPL Applications – ON HOLD

Our appointment schedule for processing Original CPL’s has been filled for the remainder of 2020. We will start accepting appointments for January 06, 2021, starting Tuesday, December 01, 2020. We do not have a wait list.

Also new in 2021, APD will be implementing Permitium, an on-line system for processing Original, Renewal, and Replacement CPL’s. Once Permitium is up and running, you will also be able to select a time for a fingerprinting appointment that is required when submitting an Original CPL. We will update this webpage when Permitium becomes available to the public.

Renewal and Replacement CPLs

Our office services are still limited due to the restrictions put in place by the Washington State Governor. To reduce the amount of citizens in our small lobby, we are still not accepting any renewal/replacement applications through our lobby window.
