    HOW TO APPLY FOR A PENNSYLVANIA LICENSE
    TO CARRY A CONCEALED FIREARM


    **** DUE TO THE INCREASED SPEED AND EFFICIENCY OF THE PA INSTANT CHECK SYSTEM (PICS), AND THEREFORE THE PENNSYLVANIA STATE POLICE, WE HAVE TRANSITIONED TO A
    ONE-STEP PROCESS. WE NO LONGER ACCEPT MAIL OR EMAIL APPLICATIONS ****

    Both NEW and RENEWAL Applicants need ONLY do the following:

    1. Appear in-person with a valid and accurate PA Drivers' License or PA Photo ID Card.
    2. Completely fill out an application (References are NOT required for Renewals ONLY.)
    3. Upon approval, payment of $20.00 in the form of CASH ONLY is required.

    The aforementioned process should be completed in five to ten minutes and your license will be issued the SAME DAY.

    I've been to my local sheriff's office twice in the last two days to pick up my approved renewal but have been told the 'system' is down so they can't get in to issue the new license. Anyone else having the same problem?

    I ran in to the same problem just this morning. They said they don't have an ETA for when whatever the problem is will be resolved...
