About the Nevada CCW Class:

The Nevada CCW course with Dark Horse Tactical is your 1st step to carrying concealed in Nevada and 30+ other states. Our course consists of classroom instruction, a written exam, and a shooting proficiency test.

This course does not teach shooting proficiency. If you would like a firearm familiarization lesson first, please visit our Misc. Firearms Training page.

The Written Test

A 50-question mix of true/false and multiple choice questions based on the material taught in class. You must score a 70% to pass.

The Shooting Test

Using your preferred pistol and stance, shoot 30 rounds at a standard B-27 silhouette target. You must score 70% to pass. If you don’t pass, you may re-shoot until you do. 

The course of fire is as follows:

  • Shoot 6 rounds with the target at 3 yards

  • Shoot 12 rounds with the target at 5 yards

  • Shoot 12 rounds with the target at 7 yards

You passed the class! Now what?

After completing our CCW Initial/Renewal class, your next step is to complete the online application and schedule an in-person visit the Las Vegas Metro Police Department for fingerprinting and background check. For department address, hours and fees, visit the Concealed Firearms page at LVMPD.com.
