Michigan law says we must mail the CPL card.
For new applicants the review process can take up to 45 days; we will mail your new card (or a denial letter) once we receive a response from the Michigan State Police.
If it has been over 45 days since your fingerprinting date, your fingerprinting receipt shall serve as a concealed pistol license when carried with an official state-issued driver license or personal identification card. Please read the text on your fingerprinting receipt for more information.
For renewal applicants the review process can take up to 30 days; we will mail your new card once we receive a response from the Michigan State Police.
If you renewed prior to your expiration date, your special receipt can be carried with your current card to make it still legal to carry concealed while you wait for the new card.
Please read the text on your special receipt for more information.
We cannot tell you your application status over the phone, but if it has been several weeks you can stop in our office in-person and provide your ID and we can look it up.
