This is the in-person License to Carry Class with both the classroom portion AND the range proficiency demonstration. The class is scheduled for six hours from start to finish. It includes classroom lecture of required material (about 4.5 hours), review of range rules & safety followed by the Range Qualification (about 1 hour), and concluding with the required LTC written test & discussion of next steps for LTC (about 30 minutes). As you can see, this is a class packed with a lot of material to cover.
This LTC Class is for experienced shooters. If you have never handled a firearm, it is your responsibility to get handgun training prior to taking the LTC class. You don’t need to be an expert marksman, but you absolutely must demonstrate a basic level of safety at all times. You must keep your finger off the trigger when not shooting. You must be aware of where your muzzle is pointed at all times. You must be able to operate your firearm independently and know how to work through simple malfunctions. LTC students should be able to demonstrate COMPETENCE and CONFIDENCE with their gun handling.
After successful completion of this class, you will receive a Certificate of Training (LTC-100) which YOU must submit to DPS as part of your LTC application process.
All firearms must be in a bag or case when you arrive for check-in. Firearms and magazines should be UNLOADED. All loading/unloading of the firearm and magazine will be done as a group on the range.

Once you have completed the LTC Class requirements, the instructor will give you a Certificate of Training. It is your responsibility to submit your Certificate of Training to TXDPS for processing. Your Class Completion Certificate is valid for two years after your LTC class.
