Illinois citizens who want to apply for a concealed carry license, but do not have internet access, can now do so, thanks to the Illinois State Police Firearms Services Customer Service Center phone line at (217) 782-7980.

According to WREX, interested applicants can dial that number and provide a FSB call taker with the same concealed carry license application information which is required through the online process, such as the applicant’s full name, any previous names, date of birth, driver’s license number or state ID, Firearms Owner Identification (FOID) card number, current mailing address, ten years of previous address history, fingerprint Transaction Control Number (TCN) (optional), training instructor’s name and the Concealed Carry Trainer’s Identification (CCTID) number.

Once the FOID number and driver’s license or identification card are verified, payment via credit card or electronic check will need to be submitted and processed through the FSB call taker.

As WREX reports, the applicant will receive the application in the mail after the telephone conversation and payment is completed. After that, the application must be reviewed for accuracy and initialed in the required areas. In addition, they have to answer background questions, and sign and date the application. A 2×2 headshot photo taken within the last 30 days must also be included, as well as the necessary training certificates.
