Upon completion of a class, please call the Concealed Handgun License technician at 541-387-7035 to schedule an appointment. Please bring the following items with you to your appointment:

  1. Oregon Driver License and proof of citizenship (government issued birth certificate or passport).
  2. Proof of Handgun Safety Class completion (here's one way).
  3. Check or exact cash for $115 (new applicants), $75 (renewal), $30 (transfer), $90 (transfer with renewal), $15 (Change of Address and/or Name) and $15 (Duplicate Cards) payable to Hood River County.

Please allow up to six weeks for processing. Once fully processed and approved, cards will be mailed to the address listed on the application.
