How it works
You will be applying for an Virginia Non-Resident Concealed Handgun Permit, and once you receive this permit you may use it to carry in Ohio as well as many other states! Virginia's non-resident permit is a multi-state permt, and Ohio and Virginia have agreements to honor each other's permits (Therefore a Virginia permit will allow you 100% authority to concealed carry a firearm in Ohio).
First, you will register, pay and take our online video course. The course is taught by an instructor who is both state-certified and nationally-certified. The video is about 45 minutes long and upon completion of the video you will see a link where you can continue on to take a simple 20-question test. Upon passing this test, you will have your certificate, which you can then print and use to apply for your permit.
Our course 100% meets the training requirements for the Virginia Concealed Handgun Permit, GUARANTEED and the entire application process is gone over in the video! (Just make sure to select Virginia as the application state when registering).
The Virginia concealed carry permit is currently valid in 29 states!

Why are so many Ohio residents choosing to get an Virginia Permit?
The Ohio permit requires 12 hours of in-person training classes that can be long, boring, inconvenient and expensive. Not everybody has time to sit through these classes nor wants to pay the excessive costs for them. Then the remainder of the process is long, tedious, time consuming and expensive as well.
Now you can simply take our inexpensive 45 minute online video course at the convenience of your schedule. Simply mail in your application, certificate, and application fee, and within 90 days of mailing everything in and successful completion, you will receive your Virginia Concealed Handgun Permit. Then you can carry in Ohio, Virginia and 27 other states!
