Printing a License

The Department no longer automatically mails paper licenses. Licenses are generated in PDF format. Applicant should print a license as soon as it is issued, by accessing the Electronic License Request. To log in, the license number is required.

Use our Producer/Licensee Search to determine if the license has been issued and to view the license number.

Once a license has been printed once, there is a $15.00 duplicate license fee for any future printing requests.
