Printing a License
The Department no longer automatically mails paper licenses. Licenses are generated in PDF format. As soon as a license is issued, the licensee should print the license. Once a license is printed, there is a statutory $15.00 duplicate license fee for any future license print requests.
Use the Producer/Licensee Search application to determine if a license has been issued and to view the license number.
The License Renewal Application is a secured application available on the DFS portal.
Access the License Renewal Application
Once you have processed a renewal for a particular license, it is not necessary for that renewal to be processed again. If you do not think the renewal application went through please call (518) 474-6630 before processing it a second time.
