Texas License To Carry Handgun Cards Now Issued With 2D Barcode

June 16, 2023

AUSTIN - The Texas License to Carry Handgun (LTC) card will now be issued with a newly featured 2D barcode on the reverse side of the card.  

The PDF417 barcode contains the cardholder information printed on the front of the card and is readable by a standard barcode scanner.  

Previously issued LTC cards will still be valid until the expiration date listed on the card.  When you renew or apply for a new license, you will receive a card with the 2D barcode.

Below is an example of the LTC card with the 2D barcode:
