It takes just a matter of minutes to re-certify online for your New York Permit. There are a few things you'll have to have ready. Make sure you have your current license handy. If by chance your license is old an tattered, make sure you have all of the information from you pistols and revolvers handy as well as your drivers license.

If you choose to mail yours in, get your form either from online or from the New York State Troopers.

The deadline is only days away as you have until the end of this month to get your paperwork in.
