After we receive your completed application, you will be mailed paperwork required to complete the licensing process. A licensor will follow-up with you within two weeks of this paperwork being mailed to schedule an initial meeting where you will be able to review the documents. It is helpful if you are able to complete at least some of the paperwork in advance of your scheduled visit.

If you have misplaced, or need additional copies of the forms that were sent to you, you may access licensing forms online.
