Do I need to be fingerprinted?

Yes, even if you were fingerprinted for something else, you will need to be fingerprinted specifically for your CPL application.

First time CPL applicants will need to be fingerprinted after submitting their application in the Clerk's Office.  The cost is $15 and can be done at our Charlotte Sheriff's Office from 9 to 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 to 4 p.m. or at any LiveScan fingerprint location.
Most renewal CPL applicants will not need to be re-fingerprinted (your fingerprints are kept on file), except if your CPL has been expired for more than a year then you would need to be re-fingerprinted.
