Getting a CCW Doesn’t Have to Be Hard

Sure, you can find and attend an in-person CCW course.

But, you need to make sure it’s by a qualified instructor, you’re available for the course, a spot is open for you, and the course isn’t too far away.

Also, if you want to carry concealed in other states, you have to check reciprocity laws and maybe even sit through more courses.

If only you could get qualified for a multi-state concealed carry permit when and where you want.

How Does RocketCCW Work?

Currently, the State of Virginia has a unique CCW loophole that allows residents of ANY state to get qualified for their CCW online!

Getting a Virginia CCW allows you to legally carry concealed in over half the country!

But, Virginia is now officially closing this legal loophole. If you want to take advantage of this opportunity, get started today!

We will be closing this site and the course at the end of 2020.

Tennessee is now offering an online CCW. Learn more here: Tennessee Online Handgun Permit

With RocketCCW you can:

  1. Take a 20-minute online course from a certified instructor,
  2. Download your certificate after the course,
  3. Apply for your Virginia CCW with your certificate, and
  4. Once you’ve got your Virginia CCW, carry concealed in the following states!*

*PLEASE NOTE: Although you can legally carry in the states above when travelling, residents of some states are required to get their home-state’s permit to carry while in their home state. State laws are subject to change and it is your responsibility to confirm local laws prior to carrying concealed. This is not legal advice.

Get Your CCW Fast

There are two ways to get your Non-Resident Virginia Concealed Handgun Permit:

Option 1)  You can find a local range, gun-shop, or “instructor” to teach you.  Hopefully, their location isn’t too far away.  You can then ask to see the instructor’s credentials to ensure that they are approved by Virginia, that their certifications meet the requirements, and that they are valid. Hopefully, the instructor actually knows how to teach in a professional and engaging manner.  Next, look through their calendar to see when the next available training course is and hope that it’s fairly soon, that it’s not already full of other students, that it’s on a day that you can make it, that it won’t take-up your whole day (or days), and that it’s affordable (less than $100?).


Option 2)  You can take a 20-minute course from RocketCCW that is taught by an approved, certified, and professional instructor, wherever and whenever you want.

What’s included in the course?

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I really get a permit to concealed carry online?

Yes! A Virginia CCW can be obtained after you have your certificate from RocketCCW – even if you’ve never even stepped foot in the state of Virginia!

You must first take the course, then get your certificate, then apply for your Virginia CCW!


Will I get my permit after the course?

Not quite. The course completion certificate will satisfy the training requirement to qualify you to apply for a Virginia CCW.  You must still apply and be approved.

If you’d like help with the application process, we offer a Virginia CCW Application guide.

What if I live in a state that isn't included?
No problem! You can get this CCW no matter which state you live in (yes, even California).
Will this work in my home-state?

Probably not. Most states, even those included with this CCW, require you to have a resident permit in your home state.

However, this CCW will work in the included states when you travel!

What if I already have a CCW?
Then you should still consider this course. The free training course and included resources might still help you. Also, the Virginia CCW may cover some states that aren’t included with your current CCW.
How long does it take to complete the course?

20 minutes! You can complete the required training and take the quiz within 20 minutes.
