How do I obtain a concealed handgun permit?


The applicant must obtain and complete an Application for Concealed Handgun Permit. Applications are located at the Warren County Sheriff’s Office and at the Warren County Circuit Court Clerk's Office or can be dowloaded online at the Virginia State Police website

The applicant must be at least 21 years of age and provide documentation that he/she has demonstrated competence with a handgun. 

Once the application has been completed, the application along with payment to the Circuit Court may be submitted by mail or in person to the Warren County Circuit Court Clerk's Office.

A background check will then be performed by the Warren County Sheriff’s Office and  information obtained from the background check is forwarded to the Warren County Circuit Court Clerk's Office. 

The application will then be reviewed by the Circuit Court Judge. The Judge will make a decision to approve or deny the permit. 

Once the process has been completed, the applicant will be contacted by the Warren County Circuit Court Clerk's Office.  For more information visit the Virginia State Police website.
