Riverside County CCW Renewal

As of 1 JAN 24, this is the 8 hour course required to renew your CCW permit. If you're not a Riverside County resident, check with your city for eligibility

Course Description

As of 1 Jan 2024, This course exceeds the 8-hour Renewal CCW Course as approved by the Riverside County Sheriff's Department, serviced cities within Los Angeles County (visit www.myccw.us to confirm your city), and the State of California.  It consists of classroom instruction and hands-on practical qualification. You will be required to fire your firearm on a Sheriff's approved range and receive a passing score of 80% or greater. Your manipulation of the firearm will also be evaluated for safe practices.

Who Should Take this Course

This course is for residents of Riverside County, and residents of serviced cities within Los Angeles County who possess a valid CCW permit that will expire, or one that has already expired (within 30 days only), and wish to renew their CCW permit. PLEASE NOTE: Many renewal applicants are not passing the qualification process due to the fact that they don't practice enough. You cannot expect to pass this course if the last time you shot your firearm was at your Initial Course. Having a CCW is a lifestyle and a perishable skill. It is recommended that you practice before coming to class for your renewal ensuring you are able to hit the target in the desired location (inside the 8 ring on a standard B27 target). There is no excuse for a renewal applicant to fail this qualification.

Course Requirements

  • Resident of the Riverside County or a resident of serviced cities within Los Angeles County. Check www.myccw.us for details.
  • Must qualify with a passing score of 80% or better. Please visit the FAQ page for qualification standards.
