If you have lost or destroyed your license, you can request a free replacement from the BCI. Simply send a written request to the BCI and include your full name, current address, date of birth, and the reason you need a replacement license.
For security reasons, the BCI is not able to accept these notifications via e-mail or telephone.
Mail your letter to:
BCI CWL – LOST LICENSE
PO Box 1054
Bismarck, ND 58502-1054
It takes about 2 - 3 weeks for the replacement license to be issued. As state law requires that you must have the license on your person and be able to produce it if asked, do not carry concealed until you receive the replacement license.Sorry, due to the volume of mail we receive, we DO NOT acknowledge receipt of these letters. If you want confirmation that BCI received your letter, you may wish to send it certified mail, return receipt requested.
