Firearms, shotguns and explosives licensing

Changes to Firearms and Shotgun Certificate applications from 1 August 2019

Nottinghamshire Police will no longer accept applications for the grant or renewal of a shotgun and or firearms certificate without a completed and attached medical verification form signed by your GP.

Your GP may choose to send the completed Medical Verification form directly to Nottinghamshire Police using the GP email address provided on the form. To prevent your application being rejected you must first confirm with your GP that this form has been received by the Police before submitting your application.

More information about how these changes affect your application are available on the Firearms, shotguns and explosives licensing web page, along with a template for requesting for this information from your GP.

Important notice

  • If you believe a firearm has been used to commit a criminal offence, please call 999 immediately.
  • If you believe someone you know may possess a firearm without proper authorisation, please call Nottinghamshire Police using the non-emergency 101 number.
