Renewing a Firearms Permit

A BSIS Firearms Permit EXPIRES two years from date of issuance


Approximately 90 days prior to the Firearms Permit’s expiration date, a renewal reminder will be mailed to the permit holder’s address of record. 

By law, a complete firearms renewal application and payment must be submitted to the Bureau at least 60 days prior to the Firearms Permit’s expiration date. 

Failing to submit a complete renewal application and payment at least 60 days before expiration may result in the Firearms Permit not being renewed before expiration of the current permit’s term. 

Please note, the Bureau is unable to process applications submitted more than 3 months prior to expiration and will therefore be returned to the permit holder. 

To Renew the Permit, the applicant must:


two range qualifications during each twelve-month period of the current permit’s two-year term with no two range qualifications completed closer than four months apart. 

Also, only one qualification in each twelve-month period may be completed by firearm simulator, and only a simulator that complies with the requirements below may be used for a qualification: 

• have completed the two-hour review training course in the use of force and de-escalation of force before each of the four range qualifications; 


• pass the written Firearms Examination with a score of 85% or greater. The law does not specify during which qualification the permit holder must complete the exam. 

• submit payment of the Firearms Permit renewal fee and the $118 fee. Mail the renewal application, and renewal fee payment to:

Bureau of Security and Investigative Services

P.O. Box 989002

West Sacramento, CA 95798-9002

IMPORTANT: By law, a Firearms Permit may not be renewed after expiration. If you allow your BSIS Firearms Permit to expire, you must apply for a new Firearms Permit.
