The State of New Mexico has some benefits for military members and law enforcement officers when it comes to concealed carry licensing. There are no application fees, the fingerprint fees are lowered, and training may or may not be required depending on how many years between service and the application date.
Providing these documents with your application will waive any application fees. That means you will not pay $100 for the application fees if you are current or former military or law enforcement.
Fingerprints are still required. Do NOT pay the $44! Use the same online fingerprint procedures for digital fingerprints, but use the code “DPS CCW LAW ENF APP” which only costs you $8.30 and change. Military and Law Enforcement can use this code. Complete the online application for fingerprints BEFORE you go get your prints done. You can do so HERE.
