Virtual CPL Renewal Class

Getting up-to-date is easy with our virtual class.  Using Zoom, our instructor broadcasts their screen and leads a virtual lesson, focusing on Michigan laws.  Because we use zoom, joining the class is easy from any device.  As long as you have internet, you can quickly and easily connect using your phone, computer or tablet.  Zoom works with all devices, including Mac, Windows, Chromebook, Android and iOS.

If you have a question during class, it’s as easy as typing your question in a private chat, or just unmuting your microphone to talk directly with our instructor.

Getting up-to-date and renewing your CPL has never been easier.  Shortly before the class, our instructor will send out the an email containing the Zoom link.

I took the online version of the class and I am very appreciative of how Will thoroughly explained the lessons and how knowledgeable he was. I lot of things clicked for me after reviewing the content. Thank you for doing a good job Will!!”

Will is an awesome instructor! I learned a lot to help and a lot about my knowledge deficits. I have taken the CPL/CCW class in the past. That class paled in comparison to this class. I am excited to continue my learning about firearms eith this company. He told us at the end of class that he has several new experiences planned for the future! Thanks Will. I highly recommend this course.

State Law

  1. An application to renew a license to carry a concealed pistol may be submitted not more than six months before the expiration of the current license.
  2.  A license to carry a concealed pistol issued on or after July 1, 2003, but before July 1, 2006, is valid for 5 years. A license to carry a concealed pistol issued or renewed on or after July 1, 2006, is valid until the applicant’s date of birth that falls not less than 4 years or more than 5 years after the license is effective.
  3.  The effective date is the date the previous license expires or the date of approval of the renewal, whichever is later.
  4.  An application is considered a renewal if the applicant has received a concealed pistol license under compliance of the training requirements set forth in the Act after July 1, 2001.
  5.  A CPL license is renewed in the same manner as the original license (see CPL CCW Application Information).  The cost for a renewal license is $115.
  6.  Beginning January 1, 2007, an applicant who is applying for a renewal of a license is not required to have fingerprints taken again if the applicant’s fingerprints have been submitted to and maintained by the Department of State Police for on-going comparison with the automated fingerprint comparison system.  The Department of State Police began storing applicant fingerprints on January 1, 2006.  Therefore, an applicant is not exempt from this requirement unless the last time fingerprints were submitted was after January 1, 2006.

    • Pistol safety training course is not required
