How To Apply For A License

An application may be purchased online (Visa, Mastercard, or Discover) for $20.00.

To obtain the establishment licensure application, you must complete the “Online Application Request”.  Upon receipt of the online request and the fee, an online application will be created specifically for the establishment.  The login and password information as well as the detailed instructions for the application process will be sent to the email address included in the request.  You will be able to log in to this application as much as you want until you have completed or uploaded all the required information.  Use the link below to purchase an application.

Once you have purchased an application and have completed all of the required fields, you will submit the application to the Board for review.  At this time, the Board may be waiting for additional documentation to arrive from 3rd party sources.  This documentation may include, verification of licenses, moral character forms, background check, etc.  You may check the status of your application by clicking on the “Check Application Status” link below.

Review Process and Timeline

Once your application is received, it will be reviewed by Board staff for completeness.  When all documentation is complete, your application will be approved by Board staff or forwarded to the Board’s License Standards Committee.  This committee makes recommendations to the Board.  Final action on applications reviewed by the License Standards Committee is made at a regularly scheduled Board meeting.  If the owner(s)/operator(s) applying for the establishment license have any criminal history, the process time is longer as the timeframe will be based on the review of the criminal history itself.  The Board may request additional information or interview the owner(s)/operator(s) before issuing a license.

Please do not call the Board office to find out your license processing status.  You can check your application status anytime by clicking on the “Check Application Status” link above.

Board staff updates the website weekly with the new establishment licensees.  If the establishment has been issued a license, it will be on the website,, under the Verify A License tab.  Once the establishment license number appears on the website, the owner/operator will receive the certificate of licensure within ten to fifteen business days.

It is your responsibility to notify the Board of any change in information occurring after the filing of the application.  The owner/operator of the establishment must keep the Board advised of the current mailing address at all times.
