Texas Department of Public Safety creates resource to verify License to Carry permits

Posted: Updated:
AUSTIN, Texas -

From The Texas Department of Public Safety:

Austin, Texas – The Texas Department of Public Safety has launched a new public webpage and automated telephone line allowing Federal Firearms Licensees (FFL) to verify whether an individual’s Texas License to Carry (LTC) permit is valid when he/she attempts to use an LTC as an alternative permit to purchase a firearm. This new tool for FFLs is voluntary but highly encouraged.

A valid Texas LTC may be used as an alternative permit to authorize a firearm transfer without the otherwise required national instant criminal background check. However, in some instances, an LTC may have been revoked, but the actual card may not have been surrendered by the license holder. In such instances, the LTC should not be used as an alternative permit. While the department is not aware of an invalid LTC used in such a manner, providing FFLs with a convenient avenue to verify an LTC is an important safeguard to prevent such action.

This tool is available 24/7 online at http://www.dps.texas.gov/rsd/ltc/LTCChecker/ or by calling (512) 424-5700.
