There are two main ways to obtain a permit from the state of Florida to carry a concealed weapon.
First, go to any of the three main CCSO offices (Green Cove Springs, Orange Park, Middleburg) and pick up a free packet of information and an application.
This packet includes the required fingerprint card. Clay County residents can have their fingerprint cards completed for $5 at the Green Cove Springs office, Monday through Friday, from 8am-11am and from 2pm-4:30pm. Once completed, you then mail in the application packet to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
Second, you can obtain paperwork for the licensing process online.
* At this time, the Clay County Sheriff’s Office is not providing concealed weapons courses.
