Concealed Weapon Permit Application Process

New Permits

  • Must live within the city limits of Ripon in order to apply.
  • Driver’s license must reflect your Ripon address and you will need to provide proof of residency (utility bill etc).

Submit three character reference letters and provide proof of ownership for each firearm you want listed on the CCW permit.
Fill out the entire CCW APPLICATION (including section 7 – Investigator’s interview notes)
Provide a Certificate of Completion from a California approved CCW course (the course must be a minimum of 8 hours and you can take this course before or after you apply.  Please note, if you apply for the permit before you take a course, you cannot proceed in the application process until we have received a certificate of completion).
