Who Should Register?

If you are a licensee or applicant, you should register to use this site after checking the license types listed on our online licensing eligibility webpage (this webpage shows the license types currently eligible to start a new license, renew, pay a billing fee, and/or change addresses). If your license type is ineligible for online processing, please refer to the applications and forms page for instructions on how to file a standard application packet.

It is not necessary to register or login to simply view or search for a license or certification. From the online licensing services homepage, click the "License Search" link to begin searching our license database by name, license type, city or county.

Online Services are only available in United States. Applicants outside the United States should apply using hard copy application forms.
