Deadly Weapons Dealer licenses expire on January 31 each year.
Several weeks before the permit expiration date, a renewal notice will be sent to the email address on the record. This notice will explain how to access the online renewal application. To complete the online renewal application, you must use a credit card to pay your renewal fee.
Please keep your contact information in our records up-to-date so that notices we send will reach you. To check and update your contact information online, click Change Contact Information.
If you do not complete renewal before the expiration date, your license will lapse. It is illegal to sell deadly weapons while your license is lapsed.
To resume selling deadly weapons in Delaware, you may file a late renewal application up to 30 days after the expiration date. You must pay a late fee in addition to the renewal fee. Even though you can file a late renewal application, it is illegal to sell deadly weapons until the license is actually renewed. The late period is not a “grace period.”
If you fail to renew by the end of the 30-day period, your license will terminate. To resume selling deadly weapons in Delaware after termination, you must reapply for licensure.
