Online Verification

Begin Search

Usually only entering a person's last name is enough to verify a license. If you are searching a popular last name such as Smith or Johnson, you may want to enter the first name as well. Searching only for the employer (such as Sanford) will list everyone in the database who works there. Search only for a city, such as Fargo, will list everyone who works in Fargo. Please note that the spelling of anything you use in the search field must be correct or it will not match our records. If you continue to have problems verifying a license, please contact the Board office.

Limited Permit Holders: Limited permit holders will have "Limited Permit" stated in the license number field and dates in the issue and expiration date fields. Limited permits are issued for four months. They are not issued a license number until they have passed their exam, completed any remaining forms or fees, and issued a license. Even though a limited permit has been issued, it will state in the Status field pending license because their license is still pending. A limited permit is not a license. 

There is a limit of 5 verifications per minute!
If you need to verify more than that, you will need to email your IP address to the Board office to have it increased. It may be helpful to only search in the Employer field. Searching only for the employer name, such as "Sanford", will bring up all licensees who have Sanford listed as their employer.
