The Tennessee Department of Safety announced Wednesday that state residents with a valid handgun permit can now upgrade to a lifetime permit, at a lower cost.

The state General Assembly last year lowered the renewal fee on lifetime handgun carry permits from $500 to $200. The new fee for an original permit is $100, and the permit is valid for 8 years.

You can pick up an application for a lifetime permit upgrade at any drivers services center, and pay the $200 fee at any time.

Handgun carry permits are processed at full-service drivers services centers.

If you apply for the lifetime carry permit, without first getting an original handgun permit, the fee is $300.
