I recently moved from Oregon to Washington and was a bit confused how I would renew my Oregon Concealed Handgun License. I wasn't sure if I would have to apply as a New License or Address Change. Answer: Address Change. Don't let your license expire, if it is going to expire before you establish residency in Washington, renew before you move. This way it doesn't expire during that first 6 months while you establish residency. Its super easy, fill out the application for an address change, along with the fee, you can mail this in. Multnomah County let me walk it in and issued me a paper license with Washington address on the spot. You must be a Washington resident for 6 months and have a valid Washington Drivers License before submitting the paperwork. Alternatively, you can apply for a renewal, this must be in person but they only charge you the renewal fee instead of address change + renewal, and you walk out the same day with a paper permit until your permanent arrives.
