The Kern County Sheriff’s Office is accepting CCW applications online. 


To apply go to and click on “CCW License” near the bottom of the page.  All documents requested during the application process can be uploaded to the website. 


This new application process will require fewer visits to the Licensing Unit office.  Starting on October 23, 2017, a $159 credit card charge will be due upon submission of the application (Permitium and credit card fees will apply).


If an application is denied, refunds will be available.  The Standard CCW application form previously used by the Kern County Sheriff’s Office will still be accepted in the Licensing Unit office.  A $159 fee will be due upon submission of the application.
