Illinois State Police Announce Official Concealed Carry Website in Advance of Application Process

ISP Seal
Press Release Date: December 12, 2013    || Archived October 3, 2014

 Website to Provide Public with Digital Identification & Fingerprint Accessibility in Preparation for Jan 5 Application

SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois State Police (ISP) today launched a website to provide the public with information regarding the Concealed Carry application process. 

The Concealed Carry License (CCL) website is being launched in advance of the January 5 application posting date to provide citizens with additional information that will assist with eligibility requirements, application fees, training requirements, official forms, information for firearms instructors, and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).

A convenient feature contained within the website includes information on how to access and obtain an Illinois Digital Identification (Digital ID) and electronic fingerprinting prior to Jan. 5.  Applicants can visit the website under the New Applicants – Checklist Prior to Applying, and can access links to obtain a Digital ID and electronic fingerprinting locations.

Applicants can obtain their Digital ID through the State of Illinois Department of Central Management Services website (CMS), which they will need when the electronic CCL application becomes available on Jan. 5.  The electronic CCL application will require an electronic signature prior to submission. 

Fingerprints are not required for the CCL application; however, background checks will be expedited for those individuals who submit fingerprints.  The CCL website includes a list of licensed Live Scan vendors to help applicants locate the more than 60 licensed Live Scan vendors across the state and their multiple locations.  Applicants will receive a transaction control number (TCN) from the licensed Live Scan vendor at the time of fingerprinting and must retain that TCN to complete the application.

The CCL website is intended to provide a user-friendly portal designed to ease and expedite the application process with as much information as possible in advance of Jan. 5.

The new website address can be accessed at http://www.isp.state.il.us. The ISP will continue to regularly update its Concealed Carry FAQ’s on the new website with information regarding the Illinois Concealed Carry process.
