CHL Forms & Instructions 

Effective August 1, 2015, all CHLs (new, renewal, address change) require an appointment.  As a courtesy, we will provide walk-in service to CHL holders that have a card expiring in 2016.  Beginning in March, we will also offer "Walk-in Wednesday".  New and renewal CHL applicants may walk in on Wednesday, take a number and wait for the next available time.  Those with appointments will be processed first.  Those taking advantage of "Walk-in Wednesday" may encounter significant wait times and the last available time will be 3:00 pm.  The Lane County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) has discontinued mailing renewal notices for concealed handgun license holders.

CHL Change of Address

Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS) require that CHL holder’s keep their current physical address on file at all times with the issuer of their CHL. If you move to a different address in Lane County, you are required to change your address with us (ORS 166.295 {2}). This can now be done by mail in our county.
