How many years before your state CCL need to be renewed?

In Kentucky,we have to renew our CDWL,every five years.I was wondering if other states have longer or shorter years before they renew there's? If you let your License expire do you pay a penalty to renew or go through the classes all over again?

In Washington State, our CPL(concealed pistol license) is good for 5 years.

in my county, no classes are needed. just filled out two forms and do fingerprints.
took about a total of 30 minutes.

In Illinois the CCL is good for 5 years.
The first CCL's were issued in 2014 so no one has renewed yet. The process is to take a 4 hour class at renewal time. I'm not sure how it works if your CCL expires before you renew.

Well, in Maine our permits are good for 4 years, but one can carry concealed w/o a permit also*. There are good reasons to have a permit though.

*Basically if one can legally purchase a handgun one can carry concealed in Maine. You all know the Federal form and the questions asked.

I've forgotten to renew for a few months in years past, I didn't even realize it and had carried w/o a valid permit, and there were no questions asked on renewal. I just went to the PD and got it renewed. I was a LEO in town many years ago and the secretary knows me. But if that wasn't enough I'm a Cert' NRA handgun instructor, so if worst came to worst I would just make out a new certificate for myself. So I'm not what anyone would call a typical CCW permit holder. Other folks in Maine may have other experiences.

No Testing required and Online Applications only with 30 day waiting period, mine took 44. Applicant is contacted by Sheriff's Dept. if approved and issued at Dept. Office. 1-5 year permits , $10 a year Paper I.D and $20 a year Photo I.D. Alabama Counties charge their own Fees.

Here in Oklahoma we have two options... either 5 years or 10 years for both initial applications and renewals.

I forgot to state that we have 90 days after the expiration date of the CCL before the license is considered 'expired'. Additionally, there is another 3 years following expiration that a person may re-apply for renewal. After that you start all over.

Arkansas-5 year license, must take 8 hour course and qualify shooting. Renewal-within 90 days of expiration, ok-after 90 days a late fee. If 6 months or more after expiration, license is expired and you start all over. Also, must qualify shooting for renewal. Very glad it isn't a "mail order" type of thing.

In Texas our CHL is good for four years, and renewal is for five years. A continuing education class is no longer required, you simply go online and fill out the renewal form. You can file for renewal six months before expiration, and no more than one year after expiration. I'm not sure what you have to do after one year, but I don't plan on finding out. The application and renewal fees are half price for senior citizens.

In VA it's good for 5 years. I just got mine renewed and it took 23 days from filling out the paperwork at the court house till I received the license in the mail.

I forget the cost. Not much, compared to what I have to pay for a car license every year.
