Renewal process information:

Concealed Handgun Permits must be renewed every five (5) years. The Sheriff’s Office sends out a ‘Notice of Concealed Handgun Permit Renewal’ to permit holders, but CCW holders are encouraged to maintain an awareness of when their permit is up for renewal and take appropriate action.

Permit renewals must be applied for no less than forty-five (45) days prior to the permit expiration date. As a service to permit holders, the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office sends out renewal notice letters ninety (90) days in advance of expiration date.
