    Sorry about this noob question but I just want to clarify. I am planning on getting a chl soon. From what I have seen classes seem to go for around $75 but from what I understand that fee is for the class, then there is a $140 fee for the actual license, and a $10 fee for fingerprinting. Are those all the fees I am going to be paying or is there something else I may be missing?

    Are you a veteran? If so that state fee gets cheaper.

    Not a fee, but you will need 50 rounds of ammo, another expense.

    You may incur range fees depending on your class. I have seen them included as part of the CHL class, and I have seen them as an independent charge by the range.

    The certificate you get from class is valid for 2 years.

    Just write "Use TX DL" on the photo holder.

    There is no photo holder anymore. There is no photo requirement unless the applicant is from out of state.
