Renewal Process for a Concealed Pistol License

COVID-19 Clerk/Register Reopening Plan

The Clerk/Register’s office is available to the public in-person by appointment, only, in order to allow us to serve the public while carefully adhering to social distancing guidelines designed to protect the health of the public and staff.

Renewal Applications for CPL/CCWs may be submitted online using instructions from a renewal reminder letter previously issued by the County Clerk or in-person by appointment. Please contact (734) 222-6730 for more information.

If your Concealed Pistol License is expired for one year or less prior to the date of application you are eligible to renew it. 

If your permit is expired more than one year prior to the date of application, you must follow the "re-application" process.
