How can I obtain a Concealed Pistol License?

To apply for a Concealed Pistol License (CPL) in the State of Michigan as of July 1, 2001, you must be a Michigan resident 21 years of age or older, have been a state resident for at least six months, have no criminal history, and be in good mental health, in addition to several other requirements. CPL applications can be printed at

Applicants will then have to take the completed CPL application to the Oakland County Sheriff's Office for processing. The fees for this service are set by law. For more information about the changes in the law and your individual requirements, please see the website.

Applicants who receive a CPL permit may now use it to purchase a hand gun and will no longer be required to obtain a separate purchase permit, as long as their CPL remains valid.
