Florida concealed weapon licenses can now be renewed online, Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam said Wednesday.
There are more than 1.6 million active Florida concealed weapon licenses, and over 204,000 of these licenses will expire during 2017. Florida concealed weapon licenses can now be renewed by visiting https://cwrex.freshfromflorida.com/.
“My goal is to make applying for or renewing a Florida concealed weapon license as convenient as possible, and this new online feature gives license holders another option when renewing,” Putnam said.
License holders can still renew a concealed weapons license via mail, at 41 Tax Collectors Offices across the state or at one of the department’s eight regional offices in the following locations: Doral, Fort Walton, Jacksonville, North Port, Orlando, Tallahassee, Tampa and West Palm Beach.
License holders will still be mailed a renewal notice from the department and will need this document in order to initiate the online renewal process. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services does not charge individuals a fee for mailing a renewal notice or for mailing or downloading a new application package. Any website charging consumers a fee for assistance with obtaining renewal or application documents is not affiliated with the department. The department will only charge applicable license and fingerprint fees, as set by law, upon submission of the application to the department.
