How Much Time Will It Take to Get My TX LTC?

SO you might wonder How Much Time Will It Take to Get My TX LTC?

Well when you’re ready to get your License to Carry in Texas, there are many steps that need attention. The firearms safety education professionals from LTC Training Texas break these down by each of the aspects involved with getting a license and they provide an estimate on how long it will take for someone who has never gone through this process before or done any other type of classwork related directly towards obtaining their handgun permit (or lack thereof).

The Classroom Pact

To get a Texas License to Carry, you’ll need take one course that covers such things as state laws and gun safety basics. You can do this with an in-person class or complete it online; there are also hybrid courses available for those who prefer some hands-on experience while learning from afar (online). Out of all classes offered our LTC Online Class is the most popular. The instructional time may range between 4 hours total per our online class.

Demonstrating Shooting Proficiency

The average time to complete the proficiency test takes about an hour. After you complete the classroom part of the LTC requirements, you’ll need to demonstrate basic proficiency with using a handgun. Typically, you can expect to be asked to:
• Shoot 20 rounds at 3 yards
• Shoot 20 rounds at 7 yards
• Shoot 10 rounds at 15 yards

If you want to save time, it’s possible for an experienced shooter like me (or any other gun user) who has already finished their classroom instruction can complete the proficiency test on that same day. You should wait until after finishing all our lessons though because being more prepared will make us feel better about shooting outside in public places where there could be distractions or anything else going on.

DPS Application & Fingerprints

To get your license, you’ll first need to apply with the Texas Department of Safety and make an appointment for fingerprints at one of their IdentoGO Centers. The wait time will depend on how many people are applying as well as certain other factors so it may not always be quick but rest assured that if there is ever any problem or confusion along this process then we have got everything covered!

Application Review Timeline

The Texas Department of Safety has up to eight weeks after all required documents have been received to either approve or deny your application for a license to carry. Typically, DPS makes every effort to provide a response within 60 days of receiving completed application packages.

Following Up

You can check the status of your application online. If it’s been longer than eight weeks since you submitted all required materials, don’t hesitate to make an inquiry! Applications are usually approved if everything has been submitted and there is no evidence that suggests denial due legal issues or child support debt–although this does happen from time-to date.

When you’re ready to get your Texas LTC, make sure that the training provider is reputable. Some people might think they can just go with any old company and risk their safety, but LTC Training Texas offers only high-quality courses for all different types of weapons! If it’s about firearm knowledge or questions on how-to handle an emergency while using one particular type of gun there are plenty trained professionals waiting to help.
