Firearms instructors can apply now for concealed-carry permit

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois State Police announced Wednesday it has opened the Firearm Concealed Carry Act application process to certified firearms instructors, giving them access to apply for a concealed-carry license in advance of the Jan. 5 deadline. 

The statute requires that certified instructors be eligible for a concealed-carry license, according to a news release from the state police. Early access to the application process will give applicants an opportunity to get their licenses and test the application system.

With nearly 2,000 certified firearms instructors currently listed on the ISP concealed-carry website, officials anticipate that instructor applications will serve as a test for workload capacities, according to the news release.

Instructors can access the Illinois State Police concealed-carry licensing website at www.isp.state.il.us to electronically submit a concealed-carry license application. 

Instructions for accessing the site will be emailed to instructors currently registered with the state police. Instructors may also call the Illinois State Police Firearms Services Bureau Customer Service Line at 217-782-7980 with any questions.
