Concealed Handgun Licensing (CHL)

Concealed Handgun License Preparation in One Day

This course is designed for persons desiring qualification to obtain a permit to carry a concealed handgun. Course topics meet the requirements of the State of Texas. State law requires applicants pass a written test and demonstration of proficiency with the handgun. Necessary training materials and equipment are provided. Minimum age: 21 years. Student should register a minimum of 5 days in advance of the course date. Tuition fee includes ammunition, target and weapon.

After successful completion of license class, student will complete the online license application and mail required documents along with the required fee for the license to Texas Department of Public Safety. THIS IS NOT A CLASS FOR SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO SAFELY OPERATE AND FIRE A HANDGUN. It is recommended a student bring own handgun (unloaded) to class as student is more familiar with using their own equipment. Students should bring a light lunch or snack and beverage as there is not a designated/scheduled lunch break.

Experienced Rider Motorcycle Safety

The Experienced Rider course is designed for riders who already have basic skills. It is similar to the basic course except the class is designed for riders already possessing basic skills. Students use their personal motorcycle. This course can provide a good way to get used to carrying a passenger as passengers are allowed. Low speed maneuvers and techniques for turning, braking, surmounting obstacles, and risk management are addressed. Student must have a street legal motorcycle with a valid driver’s license and insurance.

Proper protective gear is required (helmet, eye protection, long sleeves, long pants, full-fingered gloves, and over-the-ankle footwear). The class does not qualify for license waiver; the basic course must be taken to meet that particular requirement. It is recommended that a student have several thousand miles of riding experience and be comfortable in the control and handling of their personal motorcycle. Refunds are not given to students unable to complete the course. For more information, visit the course website:
