CPL Renewal

Things to Know

To qualify for a CPL renewal, your CPL cannot be expired more than ninety (90) days.  If it has been expired more than 90 days, you will need to apply for a new one.  You do not need to be fingerprinted if your CPL is valid or expired for less than 90 days.

How to Apply

  • Apply in person at the WCSO between 9 - 11:45 or 1 - 4:15 any weekday, excluding holidays.  
    • (If you are in a hurry and want to avoid the crowds, Tuesday mornings and Thursday afternoons are not the best to come for a renewal as we are fingerprinting for new/original CPLs.)
  • Complete a CPL application which will be provided to you.
  • Pay the appropriate fee.

What to Bring

  • Your current CPL.
  • Your valid, not expired, photo ID like
  • A current Washington State driver’s license.
  • A current Washington State identification card.
  • Equivalent out of state identification.
  • Your Firearms Restoration Rights paperwork (if applicable).
  • Your Permanent Resident Card (if applicable).

Processing

  • WCSO Staff performs federal, state, and local background checks.
  • Processing time can take up to thirty (30) days.
