MD HQL & Wear and Carry requirements

Please send me a text or email if you would like to have fingerprints done on site which is an additional fee. Unless you already have your HQL, you will need a set done for each, so one for HQL and one for W/C. They run $63 per set or $126 for both....paid here or directly to the livescan company. We need a minimum of "15 sets" in order to schedule this service so I must know by December 7, 2022 if you intend to get them done on site. 

***If we do not fulfill the minimum 15 set requirement and we have to cancel the service, a refund for the fingerprints will be sent back to you if you pay via this site.***

We will also cover instructions on how to complete the applications to send to the MD State Police.

Application fees are in addition to course fee which go to the state and are as follows: HQL-$50, W/C Permit-$75, fingerprints if done with us ON SITE-$63 per set...if somewhere else, $55-$70 per set.
