Note: It takes approximately 12-16 weeks for out-of-state applications to be reviewed. You can speed the approval of your application by providing all required documents when you apply.
Upon application review, DPI will determine for which license you are currently eligible. If you are not eligible for the license for which you applied, DPI will issue the most similar license for which you are eligible. This may be a one-year license with stipulations, a license based on reciprocity, or a substitute license. If there is no license for which you are eligible your application may be denied.
