We have compiled this information to try and be helpful. Counties sometimes change how they are doing things. We don’t know about the changes until we get feedback from students telling us.
If you notice outdated information or broken links on this page, let us know so we can update it!
The point is they all have different processes and requirements. Be sure to get your ducks in a row before going!
The law has always been that you had to apply in the county you live in or a county that touches your county. HB614 passed in October 2020 allowed provisions for Ohioans to apply for concealed carry licenses in ANY Ohio county regardless of where they live during the pandemic caused “state of emergency”. We are not clear on when the “state of emergency” ends.
You can sometimes get your license quicker by going to a farther away county. If doing that, double check that they are allowing it before driving there!
