Concealed Weapon License
At the Manatee County Tax Collector’s Office you may apply for or renew a concealed weapon license. This transaction is only processed at our Driver License office, located at 904 301 Boulevard West, Bradenton. Our office accepts applications, takes your picture, and digitally scans your fingerprints. If eligible, a renewal license may be printed during your visit.
You cannot apply for a duplicate license at our office. If your license has been lost, stolen, destroyed, or needs updating, contact the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) at 1-850-245-5691 to obtain a replacement license. All processing and determinations regarding an applicant’s eligibility for licensure will be made by FDACS, which is a separate agency from the tax collector’s office.
