Yes. Because the state runs each applicant’s background check, the state background check fee is NOT included in the course fee and is paid directly to the state at the time of application.

The state background check fee for Arizona is $60 and is paid by cashier’s check or money order made out to “AZ DPS”. The Arizona application packet is mailed to Arizona for processing.

The state background check fee for Utah is $49 and is paid to Utah by debit/credit card, personal check, or money order. Checks may be made out to “Utah BCI”. The Utah application packet is mailed into Utah for processing.

The state fingerprinting and background check fee for Oregon is $65 and is paid to Oregon with cash or check. The Oregon permit must be applied for in person at a Sheriff’s Office. Although you may apply in person through any Oregon Sheriff’s Office, during your course, we mentioned a few specific counties.

For WA residents ONLY: The state fingerprinting and background check fee for Washington is $52.50 and is paid to Washington with cash or check. The Washington permit must be applied for in person at the sheriff’s office in the county in which you reside. WA residents do not need to apply for an ID carry permit.

For ID residents ONLY: The state fingerprinting and background check fee for Idaho varies by county ranging from $22 to $70+. Idaho permit must be applied for in person at the sheriff’s office in the county in which you reside. ID residents applying for a multi-state permit do not need to apply for a WA carry permit because the both the UT and the AZ permits are valid in WA.

Washington and Idaho residents do NOT need to apply for both states’ carry permits, they only need to apply for their own state’s carry permit.
