SAN DIEGO SHERIFF’S CONCEAL CARRY TRAINING
Applications for a concealed weapons license (CCW) must be submitted online through Permitium. Supporting documentation must also be uploaded during this process. You may pay with a credit card and schedule your appointment online. If you choose to pay in person with cash or check, there is an option to “pay cash at counter” as well.
Each application will be reviewed by License Division Staff to determine initial eligibility. Applications accepted will be individually investigated to determine residency and moral character. Anyone on any form of probation is automatically disqualified. There are four issuing categories in which the County of San Diego issues concealed weapons. Applicants will be required to submit documentation to support and demonstrate their need for any of the categories. The categories are:
Protected law enforcement
