In order to purchase a firearm in the state of California, you must obtain a Firearms Safety Certificate (FSC) from a DOJ Certified Instructor.
To obtain an FSC, you must take the DOJ written test and receive a passing score of at least 75% (the information needed to pass the test is contained in the study guide linked below). An FSC is valid for five years from the date of issuance. If your FSC is lost, stolen or destroyed, a replacement may be obtained from the DOJ Certified Instructor who issued your original FSC.
The fee for taking the FSC test and being issued an FSC is twenty-five dollars ($25). The fee entitles the applicant to take the test twice if necessary.
A $50.00 NON-REFUNDABLE registration deposit must be made online. Cancelation of your registration requires a 24 hour notice and can be done by logging into your online account. Rescheduling is possible with a 48 hour notice prior to the start of your original registration and when made online by logging into your account. Failure to cancel or reschedule your registration will result in forfeiture of your deposit.
