EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2021,the Virginia State Police will no longer accept online course certificates showing proof of competency for the purposes of obtaining a Virginia Nonresident Concealed Handgun Permit. Any application containing an online certificate, that is not postmarked prior to January 1, 2021, will be returned to sender unprocessed.

This and other information about the VSP Non-Resident Permit can be found here:


This is a result of the adoption of SB263 by the State of Virginia.

As such, CertifiedCCW will no longer sell the course and associated Documentation of Competence with a Handgun, to allow users time to submit their application package before the deadline.
