Once the class has been completed, your certificate of completion, or LTC-101, will be immediately available to download.

The LTC-101 certificate is good for 2 years after completing the online concealed carry class. This means that you have 2 years to take the proficiency demonstration and submit it to DPS. The LTC applicant must also be 21 at the time the application is submitted to DPS. Because the certificate is good for 2 years, students can take the class and even the proficiency demonstration at 19 years old and be able to apply for the LTC with the certificate at 21 years old.

Everyone that takes the Texas Online LTC / CHL class will need to take the proficiency demonstration as well, and LTC Austin is here to help.

Texas Approved Online Course Provider

Don’t be fooled by other companies offering a license to carry or concealed handgun license that are not Texas Approved Online Course Providers. If they are not an approved online course provider through the state of Texas then you will not receive a Texas License to Carry. You will receive a license from a different state, not Texas. Out of state licenses do not offer the same benefits of a Texas LTC. If you choose to go through another company, please be sure they are an approved online course provider through the state of Texas and that you are actually applying for a Texas LTC. 

I am certified under Texas GC 411.188 and GC 411.190 to administer the LTC Online Course (classroom instruction only).
