Application Process

Please apply in person at the Probate court.  Click here for a sample of the Weapons Carry License application.

Your valid driver’s license should show your correct Henry County address.  If it does not show your correct Henry County address, please contact our office for additional information.

If you were born outside of the United States please call our office for further information.

In order to keep your permit current, it will be necessary for you to apply for a new permit every five years.  You may want to come into our office at least 2 months in advance of the expiration date listed on the permit to complete this process.

Please bring your current permit along with your valid driver’s license to the Henry County Probate Court.  Your driver’s license should reflect your correct Henry County address.  If it does not show your correct Henry County address, please contact our office for additional information.

Lost or Stolen Permits

Please contact our office immediately at (770) 288-7600.

If you have lost your valid Concealed Weapons Permit and need a replacement, please note that you will receive the same type of permit that you were originally approved for.  For instance, if you have lost a valid permit that was issued before January 1, 2012, you will receive the same laminated paper styled replacement.  If you have lost a valid permit that was issued after January 1, 2012, you will receive a hard driver’s license styled replacement.



Please contact a Vital Records Clerk either by telephone or in person. Vital Records clerks can be reached by dialing (770) 288-7600, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (excluding holidays and furlough days).

Weapons Carry Licenses - Know the Law

A statement issued by Attorney General Thurbert E.

Georgia permit holders should always familiarize themselves with the individual requirements and limitations on firearms permits in any of the reciprocating states where they wish to exercise their rights under this reciprocity program.
