Any lost or stolen license may be replaced upon payment of $5.00 fee and the fingerprint on the index finger. A sworn statement that the license has been lost or stolen is required. If the license was stolen, the theft must be reported to the law enforcement where the theft occurred. The court will require a copy of the report. The prior license will be revoked by Court order, which will be reported to the Dooly County Justice Center.
Upon receipt of the backgrounds check and the mental health records, the records will be reviewed for eligibility. If eligible the license will be issued. Note: The Dooly County Probate Court has no control over the length of time required by the F.B.I. and G.B.I for criminal history checks and mental health record checks. For new applicants this process can take up to six months; for renewals this process is usually less than thirty days. The Court can’t issue a license until all checks have been completed.
Further, under the Gun Control Act… Any person who has been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence is ineligible to receive a license, unless the person has received a pardon or relief from disabilities.
