Click to Enlarge Reviews

To obtain a handgun carry permit in Tennessee, you must first complete a handgun safety course offered by a handgun safety school certified by the Department of Safety like the one offered by Frontier Firearms. 

Upon completion of the Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit class, your scores will be entered into the State online system showing that you have completed the eight (8) hour Handgun Safety Course.


After class, you will go to the Drivers license center, where you will need proof of US Citizenship or Lawful Permanent Residency, photo identification such as your Driver's License, and a NON-REFUNDABLE fee.

When your application is processed at the Driver Service Center, you will be given instructions on being fingerprinted.

Even though a person has a permit and is authorized to possess or carry a firearm, according to TCA 39-17-1315 or 39-17-1351, there are restrictions on where firearms may be carried. Tennessee Code Annotated and subject matter list additional information about the possession of and carrying a firearm. More information can be obtained online from the Tennessee Code Annotated lookup (this link is to LexisNexis site external to Tennessee Department of Safety website).
