Look no further. The instructor made the time fly by in this class. Used real world examples, and his voice didn't put me to sleep. I also learned a lot of info that I was mistaken on before. 5 stars all the way

My dad recommended I take this course to get my concealed permit after being assaulted. I definitely have a better understanding of what I can and cannot do with a gun and places I can't go. Took the shooting test the same day I finished and waiting on my license to come now. Telling all my coworkers about the class. Confident is how I feel.

Glad something like this exist. I get bored easily and didn't want to spend an entire Saturday in a crowded classroom. Took the whole class on my phone and learned so much about the Texas gun laws. 5 stars all the way

Quality class. Didn't take too long. Gave me all the necessary information to obtain my license to carry and how to safely carry my firearm. I recommend 100%
Shenicia J.
thought this was going to be boring but the class actually taught me a lot about how to legally carry. I thought I didn't need a license after the new law Texas passed but I learned I was wrong. Having a gun license, I can go almost everywhere and keep my protection on me. Trust me, take this class, plus the shooting part is easy.
Benny R.
As an OTR driver, I can't never find the right time to take this class. Then I learned about the online course, and this one fit the bill. Glad I can carry in almost every state I go to, and I now go shooting on my 34 hour reset every week. License came back in under a month.

Texas License to Carry

Issued by Texas DPS

Be cautious of advertisements from other companies claiming to offer concealed carry licenses or permits that are supposedly “valid” in Texas. These licenses are typically for a Virginia permit and not specific to Texas. To obtain a genuine Texas License, it’s essential that the instructor is certified by the Texas Department of Public Safety as a Texas LTC instructor. Additionally, the applicant must undergo the shooting qualification in Texas for it to be considered a valid Texas LTC. If there is no shooting requirement, it is not a genuine Texas License.
