To qualify for a CPL renewal, your CPL cannot be expired more than ninety (90) days. If it has been expired more than 90 days, you will need to apply for a new one. You do not need to be fingerprinted if your CPL is valid or expired for less than 90 days.
How to Apply
Apply in person at the WCSO between 9 - 11:45 or 1 - 4:15 any weekday, excluding holidays.
(If you are in a hurry and want to avoid the crowds, Tuesday mornings and Thursday afternoons are not the best to come for a renewal as we are fingerprinting for new/original CPLs.)
Complete a CPL application which will be provided to you.
Pay the appropriate fee.

Your valid, not expired, photo ID like
A current Washington State driver’s license.
