Hey guys, new member here.

I am going to be taking the concealed carry class at the end of this month. I've looked all over the state website, and I see it costs $100 for the original permit fee for 8 years.

It also mentions later on something about a $68 background fee, but it never exactly says it is needed for the average person.

So can someone please clarify for me exactly what it will cost me after the class?

Also I see mention of fingerprints, do they do this at the DMV the day you apply or what?

Thanks guys, glad to have found this place!

My wife just went through the process. Costs were as I recollect... $50-$75 for safety class. She found a Group on coupon that saved some. It was for Shooters Depot in Chattanooga. Course cost was I think $50 after the discount.

$100 at DMV after the safety class paid at DMV when they take your photo. They will also set up an appt for you at a fingerprint vendor. In her case it was a ups store.

Now the wait... let me know if you have questions. I'll try to help.

Awesome, thanks for the reply.

So just 100 bucks at DMV, no additional fee for a background check or anything?

I'm also going to be using Shooters Depot so Ill have to check for a Groupon.

Where did you "hear" that?  Everybody gets the same background check, but no extra charge.

On there it says "The current fee to run  background checks is $68 so that is what the applicant must pay."

It is under the section talking about military folks. The way it worded it I thought it may mean everyone had to pay that for a background check. Wouldn't surprise me for them to tack on any extra fees they could.

Understandable question; the fee is all inclusive, The DMV collects the admin fee for the State, the BG check is by the TBI, a State agency. I was also under the impression when I got mine...its been a minute, that there was an admin  fee, a BG fee, and one for the fingerprints.
