NY State Pistol Permit Re-certification

New York Pistol/Revolver License Re-certifications are currently only required for those permits originally issued before January 15, 2013. If your permit was issued before January 15, 2013, the deadline to submit your re-certification is January 31, 2018. If your permit was issued on or after January 15, 2013, the deadline to re-certify is five years after the date the permit was issued. As a permit holder, it is your responsibility to re-certify your permit whether you receive a notification letter or not.


If you currently have a New York City, Nassau County, Suffolk County or Westchester County permit, you must follow the requirements that are in place in your county, rather than use the New York State re-certification system.
