Take a Concealed Handgun Licensing Class

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office offers Concealed Handgun Licensing classes to the public. You must register to take this class. ​Class size is limited to 40 people in order to ​allow participants to be fingerprinted and photographed during the class. Once this class has been completed, you will not need to make an appointment to get your Concealed Handgun License. Your permit will be mailed to you using the self-addressed stamped envelope you provide.

The class fee is $90.00; this covers both the class and your handgun license. If you want to take the class and get your license in another county the class will cost $25.00.
