Use the search feature below to find personal and business licenses, bonds, certifications and registrations issued by DLI. To begin, choose either “Personal” or “Business.” Next, select a specific type from the drop-down menu or leave the default “All.”

To verify an individual’s or company’s current status, enter in a specific license, bond, certificate or registration number or the individual’s or company’s name and click “Search.” For personal licenses, type the last name or license/registration number. If no search results are found, change selection of “Personal” or “Business” and search again. Because the lookup will retrieve all records containing the exact text you enter, it’s best to start with just an individual’s last name or part of the business name. Do not type in punctuation marks or wildcards (* or % for example).
