PROOF OF COMPETENCY WITH A FIREARM


When applying for a concealed weapon license, Florida law requires you to submit proof of competency with a firearm. The following items may be used in lieu of proof of completion of any firearms safety or training course.

Active Duty Military Personnel may submit copies of any of the following documents that confirm your experience with a firearm gained during service:

  • Common Access Card or other form of official military identification.
  • Military orders including call to active-duty letter
  • A statement of military service signed by, or at the direction of, the adjutant, personnel officer, or commander of your unit or higher headquarters which identifies you and provides your date of entry for your current active-duty period

Former military personnel can submit a DD-214 long form reflecting honorable discharge from military service.
