Apply to the Sheriff. You can fill out application and do everything right there. You must have your Photo

Idaho Code provides that the sheriff may collect any additional fees necessary to cover the cost of processing
fingerprints lawfully required by any state or federal agency or department, and the cost of materials for the
license lawfully required by any state agency or department. Different Sheriffs are reporting different costs.
They range from $60.00 to $80.00 which covers the cost of “Issuing the Permit”, “Background Check” and
other charges. Check with your Sheriff on costs. The Permit/License is valid for 5 years.
