    Default Moving to another state

    Daughter and Son-in-law will be moving across the river from WV to Ohio, they contacted local Sheriff's in office in Ohio about transferring cw permit, Sheriff tells them they aren't transferable. He then tells them they will have to take the whole class again in Ohio because WV has an 8 hour class and Oh has 10 hour class. I thought cw classes were all the same state for state as long as you had the class you could apply for permit in another state as long as they reciprocated with each other. Trying to find out if he is right or blowing smoke, any info would be appreciated.


    TIA, Tim

    Sorry, but I do not know of any state that transfers Concealed Weapons Permits like they do drivers licenses. In South Carolina we honor many other states permits but if you move here, as soon as you become a resident, your out of state permit is no longer valid and you must take a S.C. 8 hour CWP course. That requirement is so you will know South Carolina's laws.

    Tim,

    The Sheriff was being accurate. Ohio does honor the WV permit. Unfortunately, since the permit will have incorrect / non-current information on it, it will not be valid and will need to be replaced with an Ohio permit once they move here. Ohio law does require 10 hours of classroom and 2 hours of range time in a course to qualify for a permit. Permits are not transferable form one state to another. In fact, when our CCW licenses expire, we are required to take a "refresher course" of some type, and present a current certificate to our Sheriff to renew. We are currently working to rework that portion of the law though.

    I wasn't questioning the transfer of permit, I was questioning the taking of the NRA classes over again. Didn't know each state had different hours of training, thought NRA classes were pretty much all the same, I guess in this case Ohio gets you on the number of hours in training.

    Thanks again, Tim

    Each state have their own rules/laws pertaining to CCW Permits. When we moved to TN they required I take course over. Now they have relaxed that for military, retired LEO and I believe out of state permit holders. You still have the permit process but they waive the class.

    If they were moving from a state that allowed non-resident permits, such as Washington, their permit would remain valid in Ohio so long as the Washington permit was not expired, suspended or revoked because Ohio recognizes the Washington permit. Unfortunately, West Virginia does not allow non-resident permits, so it would seem as if their West Virginia permit will become invalid when they become Ohio residents.

    It is interesting to note that Ohio recognizes the Washington license even though Washington has no training requirement at all for our license.
