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:
