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

To apply, go to and click on “CCW License” near the bottom of the page. All documents required for the application can be uploaded to the website. Starting on Oct. 23, the Sheriff’s Office said, there will be a $159 fee for submission of an application. If an application is denied, a refund will be available.

Those who do not want to apply online can still fill out the Standard CCW application form and give it to the Licensing Unit office. A $159 fee will be due upon submission.
