The Illinois concealed carry law is comprehensive and a valuable tool for gun owners across the state. It is beneficial to have a complete grasp of the law as it relates to you so that you can legally and safely carry for protection when you are out and about.

Illinois Concealed Carry Training LLC offers comprehensive training that allows gun owners to meet the requirements to apply for an Illinois gun permit to carry a concealed weapon.

This permit is required for carrying a concealed firearm in the state. Applicants must be at least 21 years old and have completed a 16-hour firearms training course that is taught by a state-approved instructor. When you obtain your qualification, you will be able to carry a concealed loaded or unloaded handgun on person or in your vehicle.

We understand that carrying a weapon in public is a tremendous responsibility, and it’s not one that you will take lightly. That is why our training course teaches you everything you need to know to obtain your permit. You will be taught the fundamentals of the law as well as how to use your firearm for self-defense.

When you take our course, you will meet all requirements of the concealed carry law and acquire the skills needed to use your firearm safely and ethically.


You must remember to renew your concealed carry permit in Illinois. Once you have completed all the requirements for the license, the last thing you want is for it to expire. Without a current permit, you could face serious consequences. If you have any questions about the renewal process, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our staff.

We have also outlined some steps to assist in your Illinois CCW renewal process.

Your renewal application will require:

  • » A certificate signed by the instructor showing training completion
  • » A valid FOID card & driver’s license or state ID
  • » ID Photo

You may then scan the documents and send them to the Illinois State Police via their website.


The Firearm Owners Identification card is a required document for your initial CCW application and renewal. If you don’t have this card, you will need to contact the ISP to apply for one. The Illinois State Police website includes extensive instructions and information regarding the FOID card. You can also check the status of both your FOID and CCW application.
