BATON ROUGE, La., Nov. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Louisiana residents can now add a legal, digital version of their Louisiana Concealed Handgun Permit to LA Wallet, the state’s official digital driver’s license app. Of the 1.5 million users of LA Wallet, thousands have explicitly requested the addition of the Concealed Handgun Permit through LA Wallet’s feature request website.
“Digital Concealed Handgun Permits represent another first and another win for Louisiana citizens,” says Calvin Fabre, president of Envoc. “This is one more credential added to our citizen’s digital wallets while remaining legal with law enforcement.”
All Louisiana law enforcement agencies will be notified of the digital credential’s legality through the state’s communication network. The Louisiana State Police website will provide details of state reciprocity and recognition of Louisiana’s digital Concealed Handgun Permit credential and will notify concealed handgun instructors of its validity.
“This gives those that have completed the concealed carry course and have received their permit a safe and convenient place to have it on hand” says J. Shaw, USCCA Concealed Carry Instructor. “Holders have peace of mind their permit is active and in good standing with the state since it is connected directly with the issuing authority.”
To add the Louisiana Concealed Handgun Permit to LA Wallet, follow these steps:
- Download the latest version of LA Wallet from the Apple App Store or Google Play store
- Add your Louisiana Driver’s License or State ID, if it is not already linked to your account
- Tap the “Concealed Handgun Permit” credential in the card stack
