On Tuesday, September 12, 2017, Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced that Texans that lost or had their license to carry a handgun damaged in the recent storm—Hurricane Harvey—can receive a replacement card free.

In his announcement, Gov. Abbott said the State was waiving the usual $25 fee for a replacement card. Those with a private security board license to carry can get a replacement card free as well without incurring the $15 fee usually charged.

To get a replacement card, you can go to the following Texas Department of Public Safety website and log in as a “Returning User” and follow the instructions. Just fill in your Driver License number and date of birth for access.

    You can’t get the free replacement online. From their website:

    Residents who live in counties that have received a gubernatorial disaster declaration, and who are currently active Texas LTC or PSB license holders, are eligible to apply for free replacement cards. Affected customers must call the Regulatory Services Division contact center at 512-424-7293 for assistance in waiving the fee (This service is not available online). Cardholders should be prepared to provide proof of identity. LTC standard replacement cards would normally cost $25, and PSB replacement cards normally cost $15.
