Printing an Amended License

The Department does not mail paper licenses.

Use the Producer/Licensee Search application to determine if the line of authority was added to your record. To log in, the license number is required. If the line has been added, you can print the amended license.

Once the license is printed once, there is a statutory $15.00 duplicate license fee for any future print requests.
