Our conceal and carry permit classes offer a path to a concealed carry license that's tailored to people completely unfamiliar with firearms. Our training class for beginners helps you feel more comfortable about your decision to carry a gun, setting you up to understand the weapon in a safe and supportive environment.

We've listened to our CHL students and heard about other concealed handgun classes where the CWP instructors were impatient with beginners, and "sent them down" to another course, adding cost and stress to what is supposed to be an informative and empowering firearm training. Safety CHL promises not to "bait and switch" our students; we'll help you get off on the right foot with the CCW class you need.

Do I need to own a handgun already?

A Texas CHL license, whether you get it with training time in North Houston or anywhere else, licenses you, not a specific handgun. Even if you don't already own a firearm, Safety CHL can rent weapons with ammunition for you to complete the shooting proficiency part of the course as well as perform for the test. Our instructors are familiar with a wide variety of handguns, and can offer advice on the kind of firearm that is right for you, and that will fit your needs.


How much is a CHL in Houston?

A big question people ask when learning how to obtain a CHL in Houston is, how much will it cost? The license fee itself is $140 for most Texans, and is submitted with your application; senior citizens and indigent Texans can obtain the license at a discounted rate of $70, and for active duty or honorably retired peace or judicial officers the cost is just $25. Military, reservists, members of national and state guards and veterans' fees are waived for active duty and recently-separated (within the last year) veterans; fees are cut in half for veterans discharged more than one year before applying for the permit. State felony prosecutors are also exempt from license fees.

The above is separate from our $75 class fee, which covers the 4-6 hours required for new CHL applications.
